Who We Are

Projects since 2017
Projects in development

The Group is a special production company, founded in 2017 and open to all. This collective adventure includes 44 persons, aged 8 to 78, from 18 countries, every walk of life and a wide range of professional backgrounds.

Our projects are created by artist Agathe Simon, with a focus on exploring the unknown via humanist values: participatory projects with no prerequisites, cultures of indigenous peoples, disability & inclusion, popularizing science.

Since 2020, we have mainly produced films and videos. We also offer ‘Create a Film’ training courses. We focus on a wide audience and work with a variety of partners, from alternative venues to institutions.

Our Experiences

  • I can truly say the experience was
    delightful, and its many unexpected
    moments will not soon be forgotten.

    Barbara Becquiot
  • I lived a great experience, on a physical and emotional level. Joy of evolving
    in a group of caring, interesting and varied people.
    I can’t wait for the next experiences!

    Lionel Onteniente
  • In this closed space, the movement of my body was automatic, instinctive, among
    others, sometimes with others. A strange experience that I experienced
    deeply, intimately, with the heart

    Fabienne Manet
  • The strange sensation of passing through the looking glass,
    to enter gently into the poetic dance that is offered to us.
    A great adventure out of my comfort zone. Thank you!
