  • The choreographer and filmmaker Alain Michard continues a residency at Les Laboratoires d’Aubervilliers beguin in December 2016, with his project En danseuse. His residence takes place in several interconnected stages involving creative work, research, and public presentations. Designed as a vehicle for collaborative work, En danseuse brings together choreographers and artists working in other fields, inviting them to present a unique history of dance via the medium of the body of each participant, which Alain Michard will then capture on film. For this third public event, Lenio Kaklea and Martine Pisani, accompanied by Alain Michard, will experiment with the En danseuse concept for five days before giving a public presentation on Friday 5 May at 8 pm.

  • On 28 April, in the evening, two days after the full moon, Bastien Mignot will invite us to spend a while in the forest of his upcoming piece Un regard suffit à rayer l'invisible. A piece for stones, human beings, animals, forests and theatres that will unravel the motif of darkness in a dream of obscurity. The performance Le ciel était trop nuageux pour voir les étoiles is conceived as an act of collective divination and will contain fragments of what will be revealed in the future form. It will take place at Les Laboratoires d'Aubervilliers Friday 28th April 2017, at 8 p.m.

  • The Exegesis of Philip K. Dick has a special place in the author’s bibliography: it is a diary he kept secret for years that was not written for publication, containing notes on his visions and dreams, letters, preparatory work, and thoughts on existing and forthcoming works. To explore this vast  collection, we are organising two sessions, on 4th and 18th May, with the translator Hélène Collon, the author and actor Louis Castel, who presented a stage version of one of Philip K Dick’s lectures, and the author Pacôme Thiellement, a specialist of Philip K. Dick and pop culture. This opening session aims to situate the publication of the Exegesis in the context of its publication in the USA, then in France; to focus on the process of moving from one language into another and the problems this poses; and the unusual place these texts have in Philip K. Dick’s output as a whole, revealing the close connections between his biography and his books.


  • To explore the vast collection which is The Exegesis of Philip K. Dick, we are organising two sessions, on 4th and 18th May, with the translator Hélène Collon, the author and actor Louis Castel, who presented a stage version of one of Philip K Dick’s lectures, and the author Pacôme Thiellement, a specialist of Philip K. Dick and pop culture. This second session is dedicated to the part of the Glossaire on the gnose. Pacôme Thiellement will help us to answer the question - what extent was Philip K. Dick a gnostic? - pointing out the connection between gnosis and pop culture. This event will take place at Les Laboratories d'Aubervilliers, Thursday 4th May 2017, from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m.



  • For the fifth edition of Le Printemps des Laboratoires, untitled Extra Sensory Perception, Silvia Malgioni and Graeme Thomson present a performance on their new film in progress, Common Birds, and lead us into the fragile yet ever-expanding ecosystem of the birds, flitting from Aristophanes to Hitchcock, John Cage to François-Bernard Mâche to Merzbow. This public event will take place at Les Laboratoires d'Aubervilliers Friday 2nd June 2017, 8 p.m.

    Encyclopédie Pratique, collecte d’Aubervilliers

    « Tout le monde a des pratiques. Des pratiques intimes ou collectives, spirituelles ou corporelles, originales ou banales; des pratiques inventées, des pratiques apprises, des pratiques plaisantes, des pratiques fastidieuses, des pratiques sociales, des pratiques invisibles. (...) Ma pratique est de collecter des pratiques ». Lenio Kaklea
    L’Encyclopédie Pratique
    cherche à collecter une ou plusieurs de vos pratiques. Notre ambition est de créer une collection d’environ 1 000 pratiques, une vaste collection de techniques que chacun de nous invente pour survivre ou resister au quotidien, pour accepter ou transformer la réalité de son corps, que cette pratique soit fastidieuse ou joyeuse, intime ou collective.

  • For the fifth edition of Le Printemps des Laboratoires, we intend to retrace the work pursued over past two years in the seminar Partiques de soin et collectifs during which we attempted to bring to light new modes of existence of individual care practices, to share experimentations, and to create occasions for transmitting, and identifying resonances between, different experiences. Moreover, following an initial workshop, we will be organising a public discussion on Sunday 11th June from 2.30 p.m. We will consider orientations for pursuing the seminar, through which we will continue to map the landscape of singular forms of appropriation of psychiatric/psychotherapeutic and medical care, of our relationship to non-human entities and of emerging sites for the collective… These public discussions will also be an occasion to present a new inquiry and liaison scheme.
