Stage director Antoine Coinot trained with Olivier Py, Claire Lasne, Gildas Milin and Sylvain Maurice among others. His directing work prioritises precise and demanding direction of actors, which he applies to everyone, intent on empowering them to reveal their personal on-stage potency. His aesthetic draws on the density of presences and the intensity of stances taken. His physical theatre blends starkness and poetic radicality, and feeds off his embrace of the other disciplines: dance, music, plastic arts. He chooses artists who have strong identities, collaborating with them to achieve coherence in each new piece.
