Portrait

Yvon Bonenfant likes voices that do what voices don’t usually do and bodies that don’t do what bodies usually do. He makes performances, objects and environments starting from these sounds and movements. Yvon is also a practice-inclusive researcher, and Head of the Department of Theatre at University College Cork, Ireland, and you can look at his research profile, where you can get most information about him here. This site currently hosts an information archive, and Yvon’s full personal site will shortly be relaunched. In 2016, he launched the non-profit Tract and Touch to build forward from his work, and his current experiments are archived there. If you want to know about his work with children and other vulnerable populations in depth, email him to request access to password-protected online archives at other locations.
