Created in 1995, and ironically dubbed Profit Center in 2003, La Coma remayns a modest cultural entity based in Aquitaine which has as a goal to cover a diversity of artistic practices (creations/performances/workshops…) which Michel Schweizer develop for the public with the intention of redefining the notion of “profit.”
With this in mind, for the past 15 years, la coma has proposed work which, in the current deleterious social climate, takes an attitude of political resistance as it could not consider doing otherwise. Making it possible to think collectively about the necessity of a public space where the time spent would benefit from a cultural, social and/or artistic experience means considering all artistic action to be an emotional (social) and esthetic (artistic) experience capable of awakening desire for desire’s sake in each of us.
Unclassifiable, although considered a choreographer, Michel Schweizer proposes creations in which theatrical scenes, contemporary art and a certain version of the “business company” come together. His off-keel statements present a social and human reality which pessimistically admits the inadmissible: that cultural institutions and works of art are merely a question of “business.” He carefully avoids working with professional actors or dancers and calls his interpreters “service providers” which he “dis-locates” as he works with professional boxer, cabaret singer, or dog trainer as well as psychiatrist, tap dancer, etc. He designates himself “manager.”
