2017 is the pilot year for our artist residency at Les Rochers in Normandie, France. Congratulations to our first residents from Los Angeles, Jacinta Yelland and Ethan Metzner!
Jacinta Yelland is an Australian actor and theatre creator. Her proposal will experiment with ideas for a new devised, physical theatre show that explores the importance of community in French society versus an ‘every man for himself’ mentality that persists in America.
Ethan Metzner is an American musican and recording artist. Inspired by the abstract composition styles of John Cage, the modern-classic beauty of Philip Glass, the ambient randomness of Brian Eno and the deliberate methodologies of Daniel Lanois, he will record or sample “found sounds” in Cerisy-la-Forêt and reconstruct them into sonic collages or in other words, musical compositions.
