La Sociale K is a factory of live performances, scenographies and artistic and cultural experiences created by Julia Figuière, Julien Posada, Florent Blondeau & Jean Christophe Caumes; who after years of artistic collaboration and miles of road travelled together decided to found La Sociale K to carry their dreams and their common projects.
La Sociale K puts engineering at the service of the artistic.
