Nimble and wily, Studio Reynard is inspired by its protagonist mascot – the fox.
Directed by Hélène Lesterlin, Studio Reynard is a space for the creation and production of performances, installations and other art projects. The creative practice embodied by Studio Reynard crosses boundaries: artist/curator, live performance/visual art, sound/video, dance/text, solo/epics.
Hélène Lesterlin creates performances that fuse theater, dance, puppetry, sound and visual art. She’s insatiably curious about the creative process: she’s a collaborator, performer, director, choreographer, improviser, and hands-on maker. Fascinated by fables, memories, and ancient songs, she digs into history, archives, poetry, art and music to create her performances. Founded in 2012, Studio Reynard is home base for her work. Hélène also has a passion for working with contemporary performing artists to help bring their works into being: she currently serves as Director of Programs at Mount Tremper Arts, and was the founding curator for dance and theater at EMPAC.
