Julien Colardelle has many artistic talents including : music, dance, film and performance. After a degree in anthropology of dance and ethnomusicology, he created Souffle Collectif, an association which aims at exploring unknown artistic fields by organising meetings of young contemporary creation at the crossroads of cultures. Curator of the Saint Merry church for five years, Julien has also worked for many years as an assistant director, writing and casting, for film directors. He now directs short films, documentaries (CHUT!) and series (ONE TWO), follows bands and dancers on tours and documents the work of theatre companies. He is one of the producers of Petites Planetes, a label which explores the boundaries between cinema, music, and expanded forms of modern rituals. Julien’s experience flows from the personal way he conceptualises cinema, whether it is on the road, or in a dance room : anywhere where the elements of fiction, documentary and dance interact.
