Marielle is the founder of Un jour/Une performance, where she devotes herself to multidisciplinary artistic creations, performances, and artwork in collaboration across a range of artistic, literary and health areas.
Performance- artist, creator of artistic performances using different supports, Marielle creates by offering a singular vision where arts and movements mix, always in the search of an unformatted writing. Its starting point: the body-interiority relationship towards a universal language.
Lukas is crafting collages of neo-classical, experimental and electronic compositions, with hint of traditional influences, yet made in a modern way. He is searching for originality in values that music can manifest. His intention is to provide music for contemplative listening, exploration and traveling in mind.
