2017 is the pilot year for our artist residency at Les Rochers in Normandy, France. Congratulations to our inaugural residents, Jacinta Yelland and Ethan Metzner, from Los Angeles!
Jacinta Yelland is an Australian actor and theatre creator. She is developing a new physical theatre show that explores the importance of community in French society, contrasted with an "every person for themselves" mentality that persists in America. Read Jacinta's blog This American Dream and follow her on Instagram.
Ethan Metzner is an American musician and recording artist. He is sampling “found sounds” in Cerisy-la-Forêt create sonic collages, or in other words, musical compositions. This project draws inspiration from 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. Listen to this project's prelude on SoundCloud and follow Ethan on Instagram.
