Tomas Gonzalez studied literature at the University of Lausanne and theatre at Manufacture-HEARTS, where he has taught since 2017. Along with Anne Pellois, he provides a sensitive history of acting. His research focuses on copying, imitation and reactivation processes. He also works with Jérôme Bel, Milo Rau, Yan Duyvendak, Stefan Kaegi, Mohammad Al Attar, Sara Leghissa and Emilie Charriot as an actor or artistic collaborator.
Igor Cardellini studied anthropology, sociology and political science at the University of Lausanne. He worked on the dramaturgy of King Kong Théorie, Ivanov and Passion Simple by Emilie Charriot, adaptations in which he focused on the relationships between gender, sex and class. He is more broadly interested in power relationships and the way in which theatrical situations allow us to reactivate them and put them in play. He also writes for several Swiss daily newspapers and is member of the Belluard Bollwerk Festival committee.
