a k entrepôt and Laurance Henry

Established in Brittany in France, a k entrepôt is directed by Laurance Henry, set designer, visual artist and stage director.

Sitting down, discovering an empty space and completely transforming it from nothing into a playground, a place full of laughter or full of tears. Making it into something else, something new : a garden, a castle, a bedroom, a boat, the sea… using whatever comes into your head and letting your imagination ran wild. Childhood is a time where playing with 3 bricks can make you a builder, a pirate or even a princess where regards are great, emotions are strong and love is eternal. Each creation is based on this period of my life like a constant starting point.

In this noisy period, I demand silence.

During this period of time that requires full, immediate and formatted answers ; I demand abstraction, clearness also hollowness but above all for young people. For these beings in the making : helping them, giving them a choice, freedom and the possibility to open a door that could surprise them, a door to the unknown.

Laurance Henry


In addition to our shows, Laurance Henry, the artistic director of a k entrepôt, offers workshops upon scenography and the relationship between visual arts, drama and dance.

teNir / to hoLd — creation autumn 2024

Dance from 2 years old

An empty cube
Some spools of thread
A dancer
She is inside, outside
She becomes a weaver, a maker, a graphic artist
She searches, makes, unrolls, unmakes
She builds with, around, above, below
An imprint of herself
A place of your own, to inhabit the world
and to hoLd on it.

Theatre / Dance from 13 years old

3 performers to make this generous, powerful, disturbing, violent, sensitive teenage polyphony heard with and without words

Adolescents have so much to say, so much to share about themselves and the world, and so much to keep quiet. Chaotic, musical, continuous, clashing, the adolescent voice is singular, wild and precious. It clashes with others, with expectations, with adult discourse. Verbal as much as corporeal, imagined as much as silent, it says the world… but do we hear it?

en UN éclat / in ONE burst

Dance and visual art performance for children from 2 / 3 years old.

« en UN éclat » is a choreographic duet with an old woman (78 years old) and a young breakdancer.

A white set. Immaculate. Circular. A playground. Here stands a woman, a dancer, white haired. This white space is hers. She is moving quietly, slowly ; she has time, a lot of time.

The first move comes from a boy ; he is a dancer as well. He appears out of nowhere. 
And the meeting between these two ages takes shape and comes to life. Slowly because the woman, the eldest, has time. Clumsily, because the youngest, the greedy boy is impatient.

The two bodies are facing, testing each other, and using one another’s energy, one another’s precision.
