• 2016 - IDM (L'indépendance des mains or Inner Direct Metaphysics)
Since 2016, Jean-Michel Bruyère and the LFKs collective are in residence in Seine Saint-Denis, a French departement in the suburb of Paris.
From their exploration of the territory came the IDM project, in partnership with the Théâtre de la Poudrerie, the Conservatory of Music and Dance of Sevran and the MC93 in Bobigny.
This three-year project involving migrants and inhabitants from all socio-professional profiles will result, among others, to a "social sci-fi" full-length movie.
• 2019 - SUP DE SUBa special program of self-education for school drop-out young adults in the suburb of Paris and in the south of France, directed by Jean Michel Bruyère and LFKs, in partnership with educational institutions and cultural organisations.
