Luvan is an author. Her work focuses on the development of complex imaginary places, both utopian and dystopian, allowing her to comment on and anticipate current events. For her, fiction is a tool for social and political reflection. Passionate about sound and traditional oral materials, she also writes plays, performs and makes radio productions. She is an active member of the science fiction writers’ collective Zanzibar alongside, among others, Sabrina Calvo, Alain Damasio, Catherine Dufour and Léo Henry. A historian by training, luvan (real name Marie-Aude Matignon) lived in Africa, the Pacific, France, China, Scandinavia and Belgium before moving to Germany.
Gaëtan Gromer leads a creative activity at a crossroads between composition, performance and multimedia installation. He uses the astonishing power of suggestion and immersion of sound to deliver a certain view of the world, a particular point of hearing, to ‘tell’ with sound. He is one of the winners of the Imagina Atlantica 2012 European Digital Arts Prize in Angoulême and wrote the music for Samuel Henry’s Juste l’embrasser, which won the SABAM prize at the Brussels International Fantastic Film Festival in 2008.
