For over 25 years Caroline Selig and Alain Beauchet wrote and experimented together, right up until the untimely death of Alain in November 2017. With the support of their fellow artists, Caroline Selig has decided to keep their creative legacy alive. The company is back on the road.
Fascinated by the poetic potential of everyday situations, Compagnie Artonik explore the minutiae of human behaviour through the medium of theatrical fiction.
The company’s work has naturally evolved over time, with intimate ideas branching out to become broad avenues of choreographic research, infused with the performers’ innate theatricality and finding meaning in movement.
Based in the Friche la Belle de Mai in Marseille since 1994, Artonik use this creative hub to develop their original pieces and one-off commissions.
