The apparent poetry of a process and company dedicated to artistic creation is underpinned by the most incredible productions that bring together a variety of techniques and talents: ambitious projects, special events, and spectacular performances created for specific commissions, that combine the stagecraft and directing skills of Christian and François Ben Aïm.

The brothers join forces to organise major events, commissioned by organisations in both the private and public sectors. The challenge? To fulfil demanding creative briefs and produce customised shows on a grand scale, sometimes involving more than 50 performers halfway around the world. These productions unleash their imaginations, and harness multiple techniques and technologies (truss systems, circus skills, pyrotechnics, digital technologies), like great multimedia ballet performances. Though sophisticated in terms of their effect and visual impact, the choreographers’ productions place movement at their core, making them veritable maelstroms of dance, music, circus or images.

For every event they rely on artists who are specialists in their disciplines, while taking on the multi-tasking role of producers, directors and talent managers to meet the requirements of the most wide-ranging projects.
