After studying literature in Grenoble, he did a number of odd jobs and then began working with several directors, among them Pascal Rambert. In 2007, he joined the Ex.e.r.ce training program (at the Centre Chorégraphique National in Montpellier). He initially created works in situ, enjoying an economy of means and avoiding common budgetary constraints. He accumulated a series of different materials and hypotheses, literary, choreographic and plastic, when performing in public. Then he wrote a text which he used several times, whose title epitomizes his approach during that entire period: Topographie des Forces en Présence (Mapping of forces).
Since 2011, he has produced a series of reproducible works, a series of pieces, La Suite, whose first two episodes (Sus à la bibliothèque ! & Les Protragronistes) premiered at the Théâtre de Vanves / Artdanthé Festival. In 2013, he created Bodies in the Cellar, then Médail Décor in 2014, the third episode in the series. In 2015, he created a stage adaptation of Lettres de non-motivation by Julien Prévieux; it premiered at the Festival La Bâtie (Geneva) and was also presented at the Festival d’Automne à Paris, where he also revived La Suite (Sus à la bibliothèque !+ Les Protragronistes + Médail Décor) at the Centre Georges Pompidou. A mobile version of Lettres de non-motivation the project was created in 2016, as well as a Lithuanian version with a team recruited from Kaunas. In 2016, creation of Galoooooop, a performance reading for two voices with Anne Steffens (commissioned by MacVal – Musée d’Art contemporain du Val-de-Marne). In 2017, creation of the play Ensemble Ensemble at the Actoral festival and reprise at the Théâtre de la Bastille as part of the Festival d’Automne in Paris. In 2018, the Biennale di Venezia will programme Médail Décor, Ensemble Ensemble Ensemble and the Letters of non-motivation. In 2019, he will create Carrousel, a piece for 5 performers (2 dancers, 3 actors), which plays with the codes of authority by working around language, whether oral, written or choreographic.
The association Laars & Co, created in 2012, is subsidized by the Ministry of Culture and Communication, supported by the DRAC Île-de-France as a support to the choreographic company.
