ROHM Theatre Kyoto launched this program in 2017 to create new theatre productions that can serve as part of a repertoire that will be staged long into the future. Through the process of creating new productions, it also organizes related programs for audience development and training actors, dramaturges, producers, and other specialists. In this way, the program aspires to build a new theatre culture in each community and region.
Born in 1976, Gisèle Vienne studied philosophy and then later attended L’Ecole Supérieure Nationale des Arts de la Marionnette. She is a choreographer, director, performer, and visual artist. In addition to her collaborations with the novelist Dennis Cooper, her output includes photography and installations. In 2018, Vienne received the Grand Prix award in dance from L’Association de la Critique for “CROWD,” which also left a vivid impression on audiences during its recent run in Japan at Kyoto Experiment.
Born in 1975, Etienne Bideau-Rey studied at the St-Luc Institut in Tournai, Royal Academy of Fine Arts of Liège, and L’Ecole Supérieure Nationale des Arts de la Marionnette. In addition to being a choreographer and director, he is a visual artist with a focus on drawing and sculpture. In 2000, he received the Vocation Award from the Fondation Marcel Bleustein-Blanchet for his first theatre piece created in collaboration with Gisèle Vienne.
