François Testory


After finishing his training at Maurice Béjart’s School, Mudra, François turned down the opportunity to join Ballet Du XXième Siècle and instead, ran away, as he likes to say, with the circus, to join the legendary Lindsay Kemp Company. He has collaborated in the creation of an array of shows, concerts and arts performances such as: Neil Bartlett and Nicolas Bloomfield’s Musicals Sarrasine and Night After Night at Royal Court London; Christopher Bruce’s God’s Plenty and Cruel Garden for Ballet Rambert, DV8’s The Cost Of Living; S. Vincenze and F. Bock’s L’Altrove; Rose English’s Ornamental Happiness; Punch Drunk’s The Drowned Man; Gecko Physical Theatre’s The OvercoatMissing and The InstituteLa Messe De Notre Dame (G. de Machaut) with the polyphony ensemble Graindelavoix; Serena Korda’s art installation Decosa Tradition and Laid To Rest; David Glass’ Mortgage and L. Bernstein’s musical On The Town. François has also collaborated as a vocalist with electro-bands Laniakia, Coil and Von Manget and has produced two solo performances Empire, A Song and Dance Consideration with Simon Vincenzi and Medea, Written In Rage a monologue written by Jean René Lemoine, directed by N. Bartlett.
