At the origin of the company’s work is the observation of human behaviours in public areas, a high curiosity for common little things, those we use to consider too often passively as they are part of our usual visual field.
Ever attentive to fundamental joys and dramas of daily life, Artonik mixes dance, theatre, visual arts as well as musical environments to develop its own unique theatrical style made of images and gestures.
Everyday situations are reproduced. Taken apart from the reality’s context, they take another dimension and can then be actively considered in proposing a critical and poetic analysis of every day life.
Artonik was founded in 1992 by Caroline Seilig and Alain Beauchet.
