Toméo Vergès

He performed in May B, choreography by Maguy Marin, and has worked with Régine Chopinot, Anne-Marie Reynaud, Charlesem Cré-Ange, François Verretem and Carolyn Carlson. With Caterina Sagna he made his first duet. He pursued his path of choreographer with the making of two solo performances: Heropas and Kronos y Kromos. At the same time, Toméo Vergès endeavoured to break into the field of acting and choreography. In 1992 Toméo Vergès founded the company Man Drake, and for Alvaro Morella created the piece Chair de Pour / Gooseflesh, which was performed at the Biennale de la Danse festival in Lyon. He proceeded to create more than ten further performances. In 1999 he was in residence at Orléans in the framework of a partnership with the Centre Chorégraphique d’Orléans - Josef Nadj and l’Isadora / Danses, firstly at the Centre Choréopraphique, then at the Forum Culturel de Blanc-Mesnil and the Centre Dramatique National de Montreuil. He initiated the project Living T for the festival «Portes Ouvertes des Ateliers d´Artistes / Artists Workshops Doors Open», from which a video recording was made and presented at the Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris as part of Vidéo Danse 2005. He spent the first half of 2006 at the creative residency Body Time at the Centre Dramatique National de Montreuil. In 2008, he made, during a residency at the Théatre in Chatillon, the piece Idiotas.
