As a child, Jimmy dreamed of becoming a maze designer. He drew them frantically for his friends, taking more pleasure in drawing them than solving them. His labyrinths have long since left the pages to be inscribed in large formats, directly onto the structure of the city. Passers-by are invited to dive into his fantastical playgrounds, at the heart of which everything can be a performance.

For several years, Jimmy has devoted his artistic practice to the creation of participatory improvisation systems. Emphasizing the beauty of human (and non-human) interactions, the juggler by training weaves devices through his stage or outdoors performances that invite joyful and unexpected togetherness. He uses the spontaneity of improvisation, has a deep trust for the unplanned, and practices procrastination – all to create choreographies and evolving landscapes which summon simple, playful images.
