L’Art Du Déplacement: A New Dialogue Between Man And City

A mix of lecture, video-showing, work demonstration and training to introduce the discipline of l’Art Du Déplacement. A method to develop a state of mind in which we are no longer passively subjected to the ‘urban system’ but rather (re-)learn to act and interact with it and share the space in which we grow with others.

The practice of l’Art Du Déplacement aims at the (re-)appropriation of one’s environment via moving one’s body relative to one’s surroundings, nature and people. It is also about giving new life to places that nobody uses.

Laurent Piemontesi

Laurent Piemontesi is an artist, athlete, coach and trainer; he likes to define himself as a craftsman. He is a co-founder of l’Art Du Déplacement (ADD), the original name of the discipline now known as parkour or freerunning. Born in Paris, he grew up in its southern suburbs where, in Evry, Lisses and Sarcelles, he and his friends, including Yann Hnautra, Chau Belle Dinh and Williams Belle, formed a group called Yamakasi.
