Born in 1997 in Haute-Savoie, France, Jerson Diasonama began dancing by exploring hip-hop dance, particularly popping and freestyle hip-hop. An artist and performer inspired by his environment, he explores and learns from his movement through numerous encounters and travels, notably in Germany, England, the Netherlands, Russia, the Czech Republic… Linking two worlds, freestyle hip-hop and the stage, Jerson enriches his vocabulary and develops an introspective movement based on instinctive, organic and explosive bodily expression.

His sensitivity to movement beyond labels has led him to collaborate with various self-taught choreographers and teachers on the hip-hop and contemporary scene, including Imad Nefti, Sébastien Boucher, the Kh company with Karim Khouader and, most recently, the Black Sheep company founded by Johanna Faye and Saïdo Lehlouh. Particularly sensitive to images, Jerson is also a photographer. His aesthetic essentially revolves around documentary photography. Identity, the group, youth and the crossbreeding of underground culture are his main lines of work.

In 2017, he created Essenscorp, an experimental laboratory exploring the aesthetics of movement and use of the body through dance, combining performance, sound, image and movement.

Dorian Rossel

Born in Zurich in 1975, the Franco-Swiss director was educated in Switzerland, England and Grenoble, where he studied Art and Philosophy. He graduated from the Serge Martin Theatre School in Geneva in 1996. He attended various training courses with Robert Lepage, Peter Brook and Claude Régy.

His professional career began at an early age as an actor on stage, in film and as a hospital clown. Between 1998 and 2005, he founded the Collectif Demain on change de nom, creating “contextual” and “hors les murs” pieces, combining theater, dance and visual arts.
With Delphine Lanza, he founded Cie STT / Super Trop Top in 2004.
Together, they experiment with new forms, developing a singular stage language that is demanding and contemporary, yet accessible to all. Telling stories and confronting today’s world by drawing on a variety of dramaturgical sources is the company’s DNA. These shows were quickly spotted, supported and programmed at the Arsenic (Lausanne), the Festival de la Bâtie, the Am Stram Gram theater (Geneva) and the Château Rouge (Annemasse). Anne Bisang associated them with the Comédie de Genève from 2007 to 2010. René Gonzalez associated them with Théâtre de Vidy Lausanne from 2009 to 2014.
Anne Brüschweiler associates them with Théâtre Forum Meyrin from 2014 to 2023. In France, the company was first associated with the Garance/Scène nationale de Cavaillon, then with Les Théâtres Aix/Marseille, and today with the Maison de la culture/Scène nationale de Bourges and the MAL de Thonon-Evian. With agreements from the Canton of Geneva and the cities of Geneva, Lausanne and Meyrin, the company combines research, creation, mediation and touring of its repertoire in Switzerland and abroad.

Dorian Rossel also teaches at a number of national schools: Eracm (Cannes-Marseille), Saint-Etienne, ESAD (Paris) and also in Switzerland at La Manufacture, Les Teintureries and Serge Martin.

Delphine Lanza

Born in Annecy in 1972, the Franco-Swiss actress and director began her career at an early age. At the age of 15, she turned professional, hosting a show on Télévision Suisse Romande. Soon, she was playing one stage and screen role after another in Paris, Switzerland and all over France.
In the cinema, she made her debut in Claude Goretta’s “L’ombre”, opposite Pierre Arditti and Jacques Perrin, then in front of the cameras of Jacob Berger, Nicole Borgeat, David Chidlow, Stéphanie Chuat and Véronique Reymond, Michel Deville, Pierre Maillard and Romed Wyder. Marzall’s “Attention aux chiens” won her the Swiss Film Award for Best Actress.
On stage, she has worked with Françoise Courvoisier, Rezo Gabriaze, Simon Heine, Patrice Kerbrat, Mathias Langhoff, Giovanna Marini, Stanislas Nordey, Andrea Novicov and Robert Sandoz. She directed Blandine Robin in several children’s shows that toured throughout Switzerland and France, and also worked as a director of short fiction films.
In 2004, she founded Cie STT/ Super Trop Top with Dorian Rossel, devoting herself to its development as an actress, artistic collaborator and co-director.

Professional Parkour and Freerunning athlete, stuntwoman in training and content creator.

I was first noticed at the age of 11 thanks to my first parkour video, which went viral.

Deeply involved in parkour since the age of 10, I’ve won 3 international competitions, including the World Cup and Red Bull AL ANDALUS, which later earned me a sponsorship from Red Bull.

My greatest sporting pride to date is being the first woman in the world to jump the famous “Man Power” gap.

All this experience in the sport has led me to do a lot of filming for brands, national channels and shows of all kinds, but also for TV as a stuntwoman and actress.

I’m also extremely active on social networks, sharing my passion and my daily life as a top-level sportswoman with over 700k followers.
