Who are we?
SIBJA gathers the collaborations of Emmanuel and Valentine Michaud. Artists active in the fields of music, visual arts and performance, the siblings unite different art forms, from dance to installation, to create a unique artistic language. They started their collaboration in 2016 with the creation of "Glitch", which developed to become the trilogy of performances Waiting for Amon. Since then, their art has been awarded and welcomed by both audience and critics, and their activities are currently enlarging to new areas such as clothing.
Willing to renew the repertoire of her instrument, Valentine collaborates with composers of her generation and premiere their works in new music festivals. Member of the Ever Present Orchestra, she currently works with the american composer Alvin Lucier and tour around the world performing his pieces.
A passionate believer in the richness of collaborations between different artistic forms, Valentine is one of the founding members of WAITING FOR AMON, a trilogy of transdisciplinary performances. The trilogy has aroused interest and enthusiasm of both audience and critics and was awarded with the Prize of the Nico Kaufmann Foundation (Zürich) in 2018.
