JEAN-MICHEL QUESNE | FR
Jean-Michel Quesne and Hélène Richard’s experience in Stage and Picture have led them outdoors thus offering new forms of creation.
True masters in the art of Illusion and « Trompe-l’œil », their shows transform sites and dramatize urban space.
Their aesthetic approach develops into original ways of telling stories without a script. In their search for new ways to use space, they constantly create news means of expression in their shows.
Both atypical and unconventional, their creations are always a unique and subtle mix of imagination, poetry and high technology.
Skerzò’s shows, performance, urban settings, scenography and exhibitions always address to special spectators; betting on the audience’s intelligence and emotional response by arousing curiosity, telling stories, surprising their eyes, sharing amazement and inspiring desire.
