Olivier Salon, born in 1955, teaches mathematics to the would-be pupils of élitist schools. In 2000 he joined the group, Oulipo, and in 2008 he published »Les Gens de Légende« (tr: The Legendary People), a collection of Oulipotic fairytales from Little Red Riding Hood to Tintin.
He has been performing as an actor since 2005 in the dramatic production of »Pièce détachée« (tr: Spare parts), based on texts by Oulipo authors. On full moon nights, when the crayfish are howling, he accompanies werewolves on the piano.
