James Thierrée has had a major influence and impact on contemporary visual performance. He is one of Europe’s most extraordinary and versatile artists using his immense talent to create magical dream-like spectacles that captive, charm and inspire.
Crying Out Loud has long been associated with James Thierrée and Compagnie du Hanneton helping to build his reputation on the international circuit before his work gained awareness in France. Crying Out Loud introduced him to the UK in 2000 when we presented The Junebug Symphony at London’s Queen Elizabeth Hall followed by a run at Lyric Hammersmith the following year. Subsequently Crying Out Loud has played a significant role in presenting and co-commissioning his work in collaboration with Sadler’s Wells and the Barbican in London, as well as internationally.
