• 2016 - 2019 Since 2016, Jean-Michel Bruyère and the LFKs collective are in residence in Seine Saint-Denis, a French departement in the suburb of Paris.
From their exploration of the territory came the IDM (L'indépendance des mains or Inner Direct Metaphysics) project, in partnership with the Théâtre de la Poudrerie, the Municipal Conservatory of Music and Dance in Sevran and the MC93 in Bobigny.
This three-year project involving inhabitants from all socio-professional profiles, will result to a "social sci-fi" full-length movie to be released in 2019.
During the residence, a series of home theatre plays, Au_tour de, will take place within the end of 2018 at the Théâtre de la Poudrerie (FR)
