The UN is an improvisation company. Each one of us is engaged in the artistic realization as much as in the social, non-hierarchical organization of the whole. The UN regroups according to the context 21 musicians, 2 filmmakers and 1 light visual artist, 1 performer.
It is the individual and its practice that are at the center of this orchestral experimentation and not its dilution in the collective. It is important for us to preserve its singularity within a protean mass without obstructing the collective space.
The UN improvises (Unité Nodale), invents playing contexts (Espace tendu, Mottes), works with the cinematogrpahic image (Unkino).
