“Quite honestly, when I arrived in this region in 2011, I was wondering how my life as an artist was going to turn out. I haven’t been disappointed! Firstly, the cultural life here is non-stop. I never thought that this small town would have an exciting cultural season, with such high-quality events, an art house cinema and a wide variety of shows… And big audiences that really appreciate artistic performances. Secondly, from an artistic viewpoint, the Valley is extremely inspiring. There is incredible energy to be had not only from the fabulous scenery, but also from the strong human and historic charge of the place. Chamonix is a wonderful, really lively town – perfect therefore for creating theatre. “

“I really like Montenvers. In fact, I created a show there. Going through the mountain in a train is a sublime experience. The top is breathtakingly high, and so many people have visited the Mer de Glace that it’s somewhat unsettling to walk on it. “
