Nomadic distribution of adventurous alternative music VYNILS– CDs – CASETTES – DVDs – BOOKS La Caravane is an ambulant record shop that offers a large choice of « experimental » music (that generic term includes noise music, electroacoustic, musical improvisation, sound art…) The main part of the products come from the mail order selling catalog METAMKINE (www.metamkine.fr). The aim of this catalog is promoting these musics which survive outside of commercial circuits, giving the audience the possibility to be curious, to take risks, to discover other practices, other conceptions of music than those imposed by audience rating. That works out nicely! La Caravane as well. There’s also a small lounge where you can listen records, read, discuss, etc… From the 16th to the 20th of november in the ENSA couryard. From 15h to 19h. And The 21th of november in Emmetrop’s courtyard. From 20h30.
Cuisinette, Two former students from art school in Bourges decided to participate to the artistical and cultural life of their region (and many more), in a particular manner : by preparing food for everyone : vegans, vegetarians, carnivores, fine palates, gourmands and curious, favouring fresh products, local, organic, all handmade, with our heart, and for all purses.

Mathilde Chénin lives in Aubervilliers, France. Her work emphasizes versions over finished forms and privileges collaboration as a important aspect of her research. The collective space of being and working together is explored through an idea of expanded writing practices navigating between bodies, techniques and language. Her work is an elaboration of different kinds of systems, geneologies, scores and other Collective Large Objects which draw from a number of domains – binary logic, Object-oriented programming, tensegrity, etc. She develops her work among research residencies (Géographies Variables, 2012 ; La Box, 2013 ; Coopérative de recherche, ESACM, 2014-2015) and takes part to shared processes about collective creative strategies (Mind Dancing Laboratory, Station, Belgrade, 2012 ; Laboratoires d’Aubervilliers ; Groupe de Recherche en Homéopathie Binaurale, 2011-2014 ; Metaphorical Institute, Bidart, 2015). Her researches also give form to narrative and gestual performances (Hors-Pistes, Centre Pompidou, 2014 ; Dire et Faire, Bureau des Projets, 2014 ; Nouveau Festival, Centre Pompidou, 2015).
Simon Fravega is a visual artist and a performer. He takes very seriously the virtues of disguise and anecdote. In action, he depends on others (sportsmen, rockers, western characters or hula hoop dancers), studies all their gestures which are decontextualized afterwards. And then, the nature of these gestures totter : they are no more reflexes but become human constructions, and in the hands of the artist, choreographies. Combining this postponed doubling activity to a flow of micro tales, Simon Fravega develops a reflexion on the gap between facts and their representations. Using humour and the absurd, he identifies something essential in the great game of the world.
