ARTISTS & COMPANIES
Fabrik Cassiopée collabores currently with Jonathan Capdevielle (since 2009), Mickaël Phelippeau (since 2013) and Marcela Santander Corvalan (since September 2016) for administration, production and distribution.
Since October 2015, we have also been at the head of a distribution mission with the CDN Besançon Franche-Comté, headed by Célie Pauthe.
We have chosen to work with a limited number of artists, to be able to work as closely as possible taking into account the singularity of their approaches, to best develop their activities and and to propose an relevant and specific implementation according to the identity of the projects.

In August 2007, he presented for the first time the performance-show Jonathan Covering during the Festival Tanz im August in Berlin, starting point of his first solo creation Adishatz / Adieu (2009). This work is a self-portrait shaped by a blend of sung material and imitation, combining pop culture, as well as his roots and family stories. Drawing on the self-fiction style, it is a sort of confessional documentary that highlights a character’s wanderings between real life and fantasy/dream life, touching in a very universal manner.
In November 2011, he presented Popydog at the Centre National de la Danse in Pantin, that he created in collaboration with Marlène Saldana. In August 2012, commissioned by the Far° Festival (festival of arts vivants/living arts), he created Spring Rolle, an in situ project with two performers, Jean-Luc Verna And Marlène Saldana.
In Saga, created in February 2015, Jonathan Capdevielle has opened new chapters of the autobiographical stories, continuing to deal with this mysterious lines between fiction and reality, present and past. In November 2017, he presented his last piece, A nous deux maintenant, based on the novel Un Crime by Georges Bernanos.
He's currently working on his next creation, Rémi, a piece accessible from 8 years old, adapted from Hector Malot's novel Sans Famille. The premiere will take place on november 2019 at Le Quai, CDN d'Angers.

After studying visual arts and performing with several different dance companies, Mickaël Phelippeau joined the ex.e.r.ce training program at the Centre Chorégraphique National de Montpellier.

Since 2003, he has focused his research on the bi-portrait, a subterfuge he devised for encountering someone. In 2008, on the principle of cross portrait, he creates two choreagraphic pieces dealing with otherness : bi-portrait Jean-Yves and bi-portrait Yves C., the first with a parish priest, the second with the choreographer of a traditional Breton dance school.

His last performance, Juste Heddy has been created at Le Merlan, scène nationale de Marseille in march 2019.
He also carries out parallel projects as exhibitions or the Portraits Fantômes, during which he spends time in inhabitant's appartments in their absence.
