In 2002, Gilles Pastor founded the theater company KastôrAgile in Lyon, with which he developed a personal, intimate theater by introducing autobiographical materials (videos of family, sexuality, illness, etc.). His work led him to explore writing shows that cross the borders between genres, and his shows are often travelogues of real and(or) imaginary voyages. In 2005, he created a piece dedicated to Derek Jarman’s work and life: Requiem Pour Dj-Derek Jarman. The 2007 winner of the Villa Médicis hors les Murs prize, Pastor was artist in residence in the mountains (Savoy) several times at the FACIM (Foundation for International Cultural Activity in the Mountains), then in Lyon, successively at the Villa Gillet, the Center for Contemporary Research, and the Subsistances, Laboratory for Artistic Creation. From 1991 to 2001, he was an actor, author and director in the creative collective, Les Trois-Huit.
