Podcast No. 44 – Matthieu Loos about the concepts “Slow” & “The Matter Work”

During my stay in Lyon in France last week for the Improvidence Festival, I also had the great opportunity to talk to Matthieu Loos in his flat in Croix-Rousse. I know Matthieu and his concept “The Matter Work” from a workshop I took with him and Marko Mayerl back in 2012. In addition to that, I’ve seen him a couple of times on stage, e.g. twice together with Lee White in their show “No Exit” (which was awesome each time). Here in Berlin, Matthieu has recently directed the show “Walls” in scope of the Our live project at the Gorillas Impro-Festival. Furthermore, Matthieu is a book author and actor in France.


I talk to Matthieu about his concept “The Matter Work”, about time in general and about he became an improvisor. Enjoy!
