After a somewhat eclectic career, Vincent Gadras turned to the performing arts in 1995, where he trained in set buildingand then set design for theatre and dance. Dance is often based on the principles of machinery and movement. His work includes :
> set building for Matthias Langhoff, Dominique Pitoiset, Yannis Kokkos, Alain Françon, Jean-François Sivadier, Stanislas Nordey, Jérome Deschamps, Mathurin Bolze
and Sean Gandini
> set design for François Verret, Lazare, Dorothée Munyaneza, Séverine Chavrier and Chloé Moglia
> animations: “Le Petit Dragon” (Bruno Collet), “Dimitri”
(Agnès Lecreux and Jean-François Le Corre)
“par-dessus tout” (Lisa Klementz)
At the same time, he has also invented animated filming tools (cranes, dollies, modular sets). For the Verso exhibition, he mechanised certain objects from Mathieu Desailly’s posters.
