GARAGE sessions

assistance in stage performance

"Garage" session and stage residency for two emerging groups from the local rap scene.

"Garage" is an AMI facility for assisting young groups who are starting up or developing, with an artistic project and a repertoire, at least in the process of being developed. “Garage” sessions usually take place in our rehearsal studios.

The content of these sessions is determined in consultation with the group after a first assessment by the coaches. According to needs, they may concern the rehearsal method, the sequence of a work session, the group’s overall cohesion, better use of amplification, preparation of a live performance, scenographic design, self-assessment, etc.

In addition to the GARAGE session, we also propose – in collaboration with the Cabaret Aléatoire - three days of residency, doing live performances in optimum conditions on the Cabaret stage.
This residency is designed as the next phase of “Garage”.
It is proposed to young groups who are identified by local booking managers, and who already have a sufficiently advanced professional perspective.

Two coaches
, DJ DJel (of Fonky Family) and Pierre-Yves Lawrence (a qualified rehearsal leader) are specially recruited to provide guidance for the groups.

Two groups were selected to take part in this week of work. In 2015, they were Amir’Al and Mer2Crew.
