Cédric has been playing and teaching improv in different companies in Strasbourg (France), he’s a member and co-founder of La Carpe Haute.
His idea of improv is to share and learn as much as you can, that’s why he has been travelling around 13 countries in Europe and beyond, playing, learning and teaching. Back home, he gives courses on a regular basis, and specific workshops on the topics he loves. His style and the one of La Carpe Haute could be described as explosive, sincere, physical and silly.
He loves miming, clowning and playing with the body, that’s what he wants to bring in his performances and workshops.
A couple, cooking and talking in the kitchen, we’ve seen that start 15,000 times. But how can we go from that « common » beginning of a scene to unique and memorable, without the need to bring space monkeys and zombie T-rex?
Let’s go back to the very basics of a story, of improv, of acting, the stake of a scene! Step by step, we’ll take our scenes apart to the bone, to magnify what seemed banal, and make it touching and unique.
LA CARPE HAUTE
Cédric is a member of the hosting company of that festival: la Carpe Haute.
Everything started 10 years ago, when we all met through improv. Back then, we didn’t know we would go all around the world to teach and perform, that we would meet such amazing people and that we would become a family.
We created la Carpe Haute six years ago to have our own professional company to organize shows, gigs, workshops and work together on new formats and news ways of improvising. A short time later, we began to improvise in English, travelling the European festivals and quickly the entire world. Today, the international team performed and/or taught in more than 20 festivals and visit a bunch of countries, best known for its crazy and playful free form show “Just Play”.
