Jean-Laurent Sasportes started this work on improvisation with musicians with the musician Peter Kowald (double bass) in 1994. Different little dance pieces have been created out of this work. (Stock, Security, Diva, Young girl, Money, “let the trouble come when the trouble comes” and Ur. The repertory of this Duo work has been and is still presented through many countries around the world under the title : „Short pieces I“ and «Short Pieces II»
„Short pieces I» is composed of : «Security», » the Young Girl», «Diva», “Che sera sera” and «Ur».
«Short Pieces II» is composed of: «Money», «As we like» and «the Vecchia». Some other short Pieces are all ready on work and will soon belong to the repertory.
A different composition of the programme is possible; the length and composition of the evening programme is open to fit the organisation request and should be discussed with the artist.
This performance is based on a principle of structured improvisation; the character and costume of each piece is defined but music and choreography are improvised. It can adapt to any kind of stage or be played out doors in natural places.
The collaboration with Hans Reichel (e-guitar and daxophon) started in 2000, with Gunda Gottschalk (violin) in 2005, and with Pierre Jacquemyn (double bass) and Tetsu Saitoh (double bass) in 2006. In 2008, Jean Laurent Sasportes started to work with Gunter Baby Sommer (drums and percussions) and also with Paul Hubweber (trombone); in 2009 was the first stage meeting with Arkady Shilkloper (French Horn, Flugelhorn, Alphorn, Didgeridoo, Alperidoo, Wagner Tuba, Corno da Caccia). In 2014, I started my perform with the musician Wolfgang Suchner (Tuba, trompett)
The collaboration work with the Japanese double-bass player Tetsu Saitoh began in 2006. Since then, Jean Laurent Sasportes and Tetsu Saitoh have been working together on many different projects in Asia (Japan, Corea), South America (Bolivia) and Europe (Germany, France, Belgian).

de l’improvisation, du mouvement et de leurs enfants.

Improviser n’est pas chercher á produire spontanément un matériel nouveau et inconnu mais c’est plutôt chercher á développer progressivement un matériel familier pour le transformer en quelque chose de nouveau et inconnu.
 Improviser vient de imprévu, de non prévu, non prévisible; lorsque le non prévu se produit, il crée la surprise, mais cette surprise ne se doit pas d’être systématiquement brusque et soudaine. Elle peut l’être par moments et, lorsque ces moments sont justement bien sentis dans le temps cette surprise prend alors toute sa qualité. Mais il est aussi possible d’exploiter  la surprise, qui lentement, presque á son insu, envahi le spectateur ( auditeur ), transporte ensemble ce dernier et l’interprète vers un inconnu que tous deux vont découvrir.
