(Updated on 11/04/2012)

Aurélien Bory was born in Colmar in 1972. His studies in physics in Strasbourg led him to the field of architectural acoustics. He then ended his scientific curriculum in 1995. He settled in Toulouse where he joined the creative studio at the Lido, the Circus Arts Centre. In 1998, he played in Theatre Tattoo's L'Odyssée directed by Mladen Materic. In 2000 he founded Compagnie 111 with actor Olivier Alenda. He then conceived and began the six-year-long space trilogy project, in collaboration with Phil Soltanoff, including IJK, Plan B and Plus ou moins l'infini (More or less, Infinity).

In 2003 he directed Pierre Rigal in his first solo creation Erection, the stem of their ungoing collaboration, which also originated their second work together: Arrêts de Jeu premiered in 2006. Merging various other fields, he created Taoub in 2004 in Tangier with twelve moroccan acrobats, this very show will launch the international career of the Groupe acrobatique de Tanger (Tangier Acrobatic Group). In 2008 Aurélien was the recipient of the Créateur sans frontières (Creator without borders)/ Radio France trophy for his international creations, notably Les sept planches de la ruse (The seven boards of skill) created in China in 2007 with performers from Dalian. In 2008 and 2009, he conceived two creations: Questcequetudeviens?, a portrait of a woman, and Sans Objet, a piece for an industrial robot. His creations include different artistic fields: theatre, circus, dance, visual arts, music... His genre-crossing approach is inscribed within the question of space and is explored through his distinctive scenography.
