Grégoire Pont uses animation to make classical music accessible to a wider audience. He developed a new performance concept, Cinesthetics, where he animates live to a musical performance. He has toured concert halls worldwide collaborating with such conductors as Kazushi Ono, Kent Nagano, Alexandre Bloch, Marko Letonja and François-Xavier Roth. 

He has received critical acclaim for his operatic work, namely his productions of Orff’s Der Mond, Ravel’s L’heure espagnole and L’enfant et les sortilèges in collaboration with James Bonas for Opéra National de Lyon. He has also animated celebrated productions of Carmen with Orchestre National de Lille, Abrahamsen’s The Snow Queen at Opera National du Rhin (also with staging by James Bonas) and Hänsel und Gretel at Cologne Opera. Recent successes include Candide at Welsh National Opera. 
Grégoire also illustrates children’s books, notably Les Excalibrius, and has produced animations for television, educational shorts and music videos, most recently collaborating with ballet dancer My’Kal Stromile in New Studios’ CATCH ME
