Members (2018-19) / Organizations / Productions Totem contemporain (PTC)

Jean-François Laporte, artistic director.

Productions Totem contemporain (PTC) is dedicated to the research, the development, the production, the creation and to the presentation of projects featuring Jean-François Laporte’s invented instruments and sound installations.

In July 2004, PTC took over the Espace Totem, a working space for Jean-François Laporte and his ensemble; an artists’ residence; and a performance venue.

Since 2008, PTC presents three concerts series: Totem Danse emphasizes on PTC’s instruments and installations with choreographic works; Totem Installation explores the musical potential of our instrumentarium; and Totem électrique presents commissioned works specifically written for PTC’s instruments.
