Exercises for all five fingers
Gymnopédies brings together guests from various professional fields to enquire into everything which, in our time, is hidden beneath categories such as production, work and creativity. These notions—omnipresent in the most diverse speeches and businesses in the modern world—manage to go unnoticed because they are right before our eyes, just like Edgar Allan Poe's famous purloined letter.
The project is based on conversations, concerts and presentations about various initiatives and journeys. Using these, we will try to better understand how musicians, IT professionals, sportspeople, choreographers, surgeons and other professionals coordinate their resources to meet their goal of performing a task well.
