COPPELIA PRESS is an independent publishing project founded in 2019 by two artists, Elsa Quintin (Le Dessin Observé) and Ivan Samokrutkin (системa). Our project aims to develop a network of living artists and authors based in different geo zones, and propose some different experiences around the printed forms, through radio-creations and performances. The name of this editorial project refers to the sentimental-comic ballet of Arthur Saint-Léon and the composer Léo Délibes after a tale by Hoffman: Suffering from not having a child, the clockmaker Coppélius decides to make one. The man gradually makes an automaton resembling a young girl: Coppélia. Between absurd of mechanical movements and reminiscent classical popular shows, our printed objects appear to be protagonists of the scene, on the stage.
