Born in 1972, Michael Cros is a french choreographer and visual artist living in Marseille (south of France). Graduated from Art Schools of Marseille and Lyon, he is interested in various states of the body, whether considered alone or in interaction with others. He involves different gender of bodies (humans, puppets, machines) in performances, visual installations, and short films. He questions our human condition and its boundaries (somewhere between the animal kingdom and the world of the machines) as well as the links which push us to live together. Since 2007, he is part of the Galerie Vanessa Quang (Paris), and a portion of his short films have been featured by Vidéographe (Montreal). Since 2012, he is regularly involved in the CORPS OBJET IMAGE project by Renaud Herbin, director of the TJP Centre Dramatique National of Alsace-Strasbourg (France).
