Compagnie Puéril Péril
Apparently it’s not that easy to pronounce (especially for you English speakers!)… but still, it’s beautiful our name and full of meaning, too! Because the base of our business is risk. The one that makes the public tremble delightfully. The one that makes you peak from between your fingers, your eyes hidden behind your hands. The one that makes your heartbeat hammer.
The company was born in fall 2015 from duo Ronan and Dorian’s desire to create with circus, but it all came together with some beautiful and important encounters: Emmanuelle and Manon in administration; Nadege, Clémentine, Thierry, Nicolas, Catherine… an office full of people invested in this young association based in Lyon; and of course Rachel and Mathis, our new creative compatriots.
The main ambition of Puéril Péril remains, ultimately, to rule the world, but in the meantime we have lots of varied wishes to pursue: to create, to exchange, to travel, to surprise ourselves again and again… We hope to transport people Elsewhere, with us. And of course, it’s a love story. It’s always a love story.
Mathis came to his passion for music later in life and went on to graduate from
the Lyon CNSMD in composition and orchestration.
For a year he studied at the Sibelius Academy of Helsinki, an experience that led
him to found the collective E.Ch.O. While continuing his work in contemporary
music with the group Fallow and his solo projects, he joined Company Puéril
Péril as composer/performer for the creation of “L’Autre”.
