He conceives, writes and stages GdRA's theatre. He supervises the investigation and interviews carried out by the company. On stage, he plays music, acts and dances. Rulhes was born in 1975 into an Occitan farming family. He began singing and playing music as a child. In the 90s, he got a degree in communication, sociology and anthropology from EHESS-Paris and was a student-researcher at CAS-LISST laboratory (Toulouse). He played music in concerts, shows, dance performances, and for television and documentary films, in France and abroad. In the 2000s, he had many interdisciplinary artistic experiences mixing music with writing, scenography, movement, visual and sound design, staging, and the humanities. In 2005, he co-founded the GdRA with Julien Cassier.
Since 2007 and Singularités ordinaires, the company's first show, Rulhes' work has been questioning how arts and the humanities may hang together and give birth to a plural theatre that would be both physical and narrative. Christophe Rulhes’ writings are based on the public sphere and investigation of recurring themes: the person's frailties and abilities, flamboyance of the ordinary, invention of daily life, narrative identity, singularity, ecology of practices, environmental issues, collection of words considered as minor or barely audible. For a free and playful theatre of the humanities, addressed to everyone and deeply rooted in the present.
