ALIS was created in 1982, in Paris, by Pierre Fourny (http://www.alis-fr.com/). Since 1990, the company lives and works in Fère-en-Tardenois, a small town in northern France. Plays, as well as exhibitions, events and films, trace a surprising body of work in which the word is seized within the image of what it enunciates, and the image is interpreted absolutely literally. ALIS’ inventions — a theater of forms, a visual theater — gently disturb comfortable standards of perception to reveal paths which lead reality towards us and make it make sense.
