This unique performance was born from the meeting of two different artistic worlds: François Chaignaud, a dancer, singer and performer who uses his voice to express deep sensory and spiritual experiences, and Aymeric Hainaux, a versatile artist, beatboxer and musician who experiments . with repetitive phrases, beats, audio feedback and shouting. Both fascinated by each other's work, they entered the studio with a desire to push their musical boundaries. They wanted to explore unknown areas of song and rhythm and create their own unique musical and physical form of expression.

On stage, they treat it as a dynamic playground with ever-changing rules, using their voices, feet and arms to create a performance of uneven rhythms. Their love for blending musical traditions drives them to find a point of vibrational resonance. Whether they observe, collide, connect or listen, their duo resembles a mirliton – a term that in French can mean a small flute, a headpiece, a gold coin or a type of pastry: versatile, resonant and elusive.

We are happy that François is back in Rotterdam. In 2022 we presented his beautiful work Symphonia at Feeling Curious?, and in 2023, in collaboration with the O festival, the critically acclaimed Tumulus.


François Chaignaud lives and works in Paris. Trained at the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Danse, he combines dance and song, drawing from various sources of inspiration. His work explores the potential of the human body, drawing on historical references from erotic literature to sacred art.

Aymeric Hainaux is a multiple winner of the French Beatbox Championship, cartoonist, visual artist and poet, known for his intensely physical beatbox style. His music emerges from his voice, breathing, muscle tension, movements, heartbeat and sudden bursts of sound, with which he celebrates life.
