Mathilde Maillard grew up in Saint-Nazaire and has nurtured a tender addiction to harbor atmospheres ever since.
Furthermore, she collaborates with l’Amicale starting in 2011: first as a producer and project coordinator, then as an actress and author with On traversera le pont une fois rendues à la rivière.
In 2017 she develops CLUB TRAVAIL, a project to explore the intimate relationship between people and their work.
In this multilayered constellation, she creates meeting mechanisms in which she revisits the form known as "conversation": from online meeting platforms akin to Employment Offices of Love ; in Petite Banlieue with Samuel Hackwill ; with radio dialogues and songs for workers of all kinds; with De près on ne voit que la peinture (From up close, you can only see the paint) where she, Samuel Hackwill and Maxime Lacôme (and a gang of remote futurologists), try to make a not very funny word (work) resound with some that are softer to the ear (like looped songs or on the spot fortune-telling), and with Le Tarot du travail (The Tarot of Work), a collective intelligence game that relies on our amateur and spontaneous card-reading skills to experiment with wiser and more desirable articulations between work and daily life, colleagues and living beings.
She finds it strange to talk about herself in the third person, but you will all have guessed that she is the one talking to you right now.
