He also played with numerous ensembles and orchestras including Prometheus, Oxalys, the VRT philharmonic orchestra, Ictus and Ensemble 20. Jahrhundert (Vienna). In 1996 he went on a world tour as the musical leader in Alain Platel’s “La Tristeza Complice” (Les Ballets C. de la B.-Het Muziek Lod). He also played in several musical theatre productions: "Charms" (Daniil Charms) with music by Peter Vermeersch, a production of Walpurgis; "Meneer, De zot en tkint" (Jan De Corte) directed by Jan Ritsma and with music by Walter Hus, a production of Limelight; "Het laatste verlangen" (Elvis Peeters) directed by Vital Schraenen, with music by Koen Van Roy and Chris Carlier, a production of Tirasilla and "Ontmoeting met een Mens" by An de Donder with music by Rik Verstrepen in a production of Het Muziek Lod. In 2001 Thuriot played in a project together with Weshem (Moroccan company) in Uzbekistan.
The following year it was Senegal’s turn as part of “Hamdalaye”, a project of NGO Islands of Peace led artistically by Wouter Vandenabeele (Ambrozijn, Olla Vogola). In the meantime, Thuriot's old ambition was rearing its head again: improvisation and own compositions. He shaped this with his own projects such as Squeezebox Hardware, the trio “World’s most comfortable Zigzag orchestra”, a duo with Kristof Rosseeuw (double bass), a duo with Catherine Delasalle (vocals) and recently joined the jazz formation of Steve Houben and Jacques Pirotton.
