Vincent Roumagnac is a French-Basque theatre artist and researcher, born in Biarritz, living-working in Finland and France. His work materializes through multiple forms such as installations, performances, and videoscenic acts. Roumagnac is interested in the way the notion and the practice of the “stage” evolve according to the change of climatic and techno-ecological conditions. His work obliquely plays with memories of western theatrical representation, architecture, and literature, that are displaced in a movement of transition of scenic thinking and imaginary. He is also involved in investigative and transdisciplinary processes that implement the connections between art and research. Since 2010 he collaborates with Finnish choreographer Simo Kellokumpu and since 2012 with French visual artist Aurélie Pétrel, with whom he is, in 2020, winner of the Villa Kujoyama Residency prize. His solo and collaborative projects have been featured in different European and international venues in France, Spain, Portugal, Italy, Germany, Finland, Iceland, Argentina, Japan and Canada. From 2016 to 2018 he co-directs, as part of his doctorate, the weSANK research platform in collaboration with the architect, curator and researcher Emmanuelle Chiappone-Piriou. In 2019 he launches with Outi Condit and Simo Kellokumpu the artistic research cluster Q̶͈̬̿͝l̴̛̬̝̒o̵̰̍̔ǘ̴̼ḓ̷̟̓̅s̷̻̦̆Q̸̠̿͒u̷͓͚͊̽A̸̛̘͝r̷̖͈̀͝ṭ̶̏͘z̶̩̩͛. He is currently conducting a doctorate in artistic research at the Performing Arts Research Centre of the University of the Arts of Helsinki on theatre and time ecology under the working title Reacclimating the Stage (2015 – 2020).
