Coming from body theatre, he learnt different techniques of body works including acrobatics, mime, chinese martial arts, body theatre, african dance, mask, voice, clown. His major sources and influences come from Antonin Artaud, Eugenio Barba, Yves Lorelle, Sankai Juku, Jacques Lecoq, as well as contact dance and Butoh.
He has developed a unique and specific approach of movement and gesture based the slow-motion skill which has led him to create performances and concepts essentially based on the experience of time and space.
He mainly performs his own creations but also collaborates with others.
In 1998 he founded the "BK Compagnie", and in 2009, the "reset dance I connection" group.
