Jean-Luc Courcoult

Royal de Luxe
Founder | Royal de Luxe

Jean-Luc Courcoult co-founded the Royal de Luxe company in 1979, with the objective of living and creating poetic imaginary worlds in Nantes, and travelling the world to create emotions within the public. As if guided by a sense of urgency, he tries at every moment of his life to find the formula that will put stars in the eyes of any being who implicitly asks him to ""draw me a sheep"". In this journey to the planet Imagination, he feels like a magician. The positive energy of life that he carries in him since childhood does not refuse him anything. His ebullient spirit gives him the strength to blow on the Universe, to shake up the continents until reenchanting the road of the Giants, to cross Planck's wall, to pitch his tent on the facade of a building of Bellevue, to give to the dreams new galaxies. With the Royal band, Jean-Luc provokes pure and true shocks, it is a style, a form of creation, which was not there before him, each scene, each painting, evokes others that the public will have to join.

Royal de Luxe

Royal de Luxe is a French street theater company, founded in 1979 in Aix-en-Provence1 by Jean-Luc Courcoult, Véronique Loève and Didier Gallot-Lavallée2 and based in Nantes since 1989. Its aim is to break into the public space, in particular through the misuse of objects and the use of gigantism. In that, the company is representative of the movement of the reconquest of the street and the daily life by the marvelous and the arts of the spectacle, appeared in the years 1960 and 70, in the line of Michel Crespin.
