Mobility and international cooperation are today two of the main keys allowing significant advances in the artistic field as well as in the research of new production and new financing models.

The Compagnie Humaine is co-founder of European exchange and cooperation network Studiotrade initiated in 2010 in Düsseldorf. Partners of this network are dance companies, residences places and production organizations which share residence and programming opportunities. Their goal is to favour the mutualisation of research and creation places, and the exploration of new territories as alternative spaces of development for choreographic artists in Europe.
Since 2014, Studiotrade offers within the framework of European main events platforms combining choreographic performances and dance films projections. In France, Éric programs since 2015 a Studiotrade Platform at the Festival de Danse Cannes Côte d’Azur France.

(Never Ending Searching for Exact Vocal Expression and Nuances)

Following preparatory laboratories in 2018 for the creation of the opera Seven Stones during the 70th edition of the Aix-en-Provence Festival, the German-French-Czech composer Ondřej Adámek and Éric decided to continue a work started together since several years on the presence of moving bodies on stage, in search of a new physicality and authenticity in the music and its interpretation.

MOVING VOICES is the name which they have given to this new creation movement.

They are looking to open the fields of physical expression palettes by dynamizing staging, movements and vocal expression. Their common work is based on a body and voice warm-up performed simultaneously, through musical rehearsals without a score, on a permanent overlapping of musical rehearsals and of staging in space and in movement work by the performers.

They founded together the French-German Ensemble N.E.S.E.V.E.N. whose artistic director is Ondřej.
The Ensemble and the Compagnie Humaine jointly produce works in which all the performers use body, voice, objects and musical instruments. These projects are co-produced by prestigious international partners such as the Venice Biennale (Italy), the Festival Présence of Radio France and the GMEM National Center for Music Creation (France) or the Wittener Tage für neue Kammermusik (Germany).

Their piece Reaching Out received the Best Production Award at the Venice Biennale / Biennale Musica 2022.

The members of N.E.S.E.V.E.N are:
Ondřej Adámek,  Éric Oberdorff, Olga Siemieńczuk, Shigeko Hata, Landy Andriamboavonjy, Nicolas Simeha, Steve Zheng, Paul-Alexandre Dubois, Jeanne Larrouturou, Miguel Angel Garcia Martin, João Carlos Pacheco
N.E.S.E.V.E.N has commissioned music from the following composers:
Rino Murakami Salmon crossing, Mio Chareteau Single 1 & Single 2, Martin Smolka Stretto, Mayke Nas Behind The Scenes V: Playtime
