[AIS] was founded in 2011 after the arrival of Inari Salmivaara to France.
In addition to new work created in France it hosts the body of work created between 2005- 2010 in the Netherlands.
[AIS] is a company exploring performance as a situation and performing as a condition.
The manifestations of the company are results of an on-going investigation on language arising from mixing and juxtaposing different disciplines. The performances reflect on varies socio-political themes like utopia, hope etc. however the performances don’t use direct references to actual politics but approach the themes by taking the performance as a circumstance and articulating specifically on the conventions of theater. The public is often directly implicated or addressed in the performances.
Collaboration between artists from different disciplines is the base for the creations of [AIS]
