At the invitation of baroque choreographer Béatrice Massin, Mickaël Phelippeau will create the first piece for the Fabrique des écritures (a commissioning process inviting choreographers to create pieces for the Fêtes galantes company). His piece is called Lou, and it is a choreographic portrait of Lou Cantor. With this star performer of the Fêtes galantes company, he will delve into a specific repertory while following his own exploration of comparative alterity and proposing "the experience of a body". His solo sheds light on the subjective trajectory of one for whom the "belle danse" of the baroque tradition is a dance of the present and a woman's dance.

For the program La Fabrique des écritures*, Béatrice Massin has invited choreographers to confront their own idioms with the world of Baroque art. Mickaël Phelippeau worked with Mathilde Monnier and Daniel Larrieu before he started developing “dual choreographic portraits” in 2008, in which he met with artists and non-professional dancers (Footballeuses, Juste Heddy, De Françoise à Alice).
