Les Idoles’ approach is searching, stealing references, slipping into someone else’s shoes… They are a tribute collective, criss-crossed by a myriad of cinematic, photographic, and musical references. This unique and offbeat workspace allows them to question the images that surround them, from the most popular to the most elitist. Which ones do we forget, or which persist over time? Through bodily and musical research, they create projects, and hybrid, quirky, and anachronistic performances. They enjoy playing with codes and changing perspectives. Thus, the question of gaze and the relationship with the audience
runs through their work.

Chandra Grangean and Lise Messina are Les Idoles. They met in 2012 at the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique et de Danse de Lyon. Driven by artistic affinities, they began collaborating during their years of study. Later, they worked together with Maguy Marin and in 2022, they founded Les Idoles, which is part of La Feat: an artistic platform where they exchange and collaborate with two other collectives, Hoods Flakes and Dikie Istorii.
