César Vayssié is an artist who produces films, pictures and performances. His work sidesteps any classification. Not a dancer not a choreographer, he uses the choreographic medium in performative or visual proposals as a physical argument of the idea of commitment (artistic, political, loving commitment). After graduating from Beaux-Arts (Fine Arts), he joined the Académie de France - Villa Medici in Rome as a filmmaker and produces a full-length movie Elvis de Médicis co-written with Yves Pagès. In 2000 he produces the movie Les Disparates and has since then regularly worked with Boris Charmatz (Eductionhéâtre-élévision, Bocal, Three collective gestures). He produces pictures for artists, Yves-Noël Genod and Xavier Le Roy amongst others. His artist status is emblematic of a work permanently trying to find itself, travelling from visual art to performance, starting from intra and extra cinematographic influences often close to plastic arts. In 2010 the encounter with Philippe Quesne is an opportunity to get concretely closer with the stage (performer in Big Bangl’Effet de SergeBivouac). Garden Party is a film co-directed by P.Quesne and C.Vayssié. In 2013 he produces Levée with Boris Charmatz, the film is shown at MoMA.

Through UFE performance created at MuCEM for Actoral 15, César Vayssié pursues an untypical path which invests the field of performing art. In 2016 he co-signs with Francois Chaignaud the installation The Sweetest Choice shot in the Death Valley (California) . UFE film was finished on may 2016.

César Vayssié create a new performance COPROUD where he's dancing a duet with great dancers (FIAC 2016 / Ménagerie de Verre). He's actually preparing a live exhibition EXEMPLE and a new film HOMME SAPIN.
