Founded in 2015. Based in Marseille, France.
Organon Art Cie is a collective of artists, performers, composers, writers, and choreographers working with local youth groups in collaborative workshops. Together, they create and produce performances, digital content, and films that combine theater, music, dance, and other creative communication strategies in order to provide young people with opportunities to see and express themselves outside of their immediate situations. With projects and documentaries that follow their creative processes, Organon Art Cie investigates the daily life contemporary realities of the inhabitants from la Belle de Mai as much as from asylum seekers or refugees from all over the world. Through explorations of historical and local contexts, and personal and collective experiences, the group creates new perspectives on class, education, and other pressing social issues.
