The dance language of Carmen is free, hot, beautiful and diverse, a narrative following modern dancers as they re-enact the love affair of the 'passionate gypsy' in their personal lives, culminating in a fatal and tragic conclusion.

Based on Prosper Mérimée novella, and incorporating music from Georges Bizet's opera of the same name, this performance is staged by the Antonio Gades Company, leaders in the flamenco dance world.

French Breaking Season: Dos au Mur @ SIDC

48Dos.au.mur-Bee.D-Kami.CDC3.2018.DA.jpg

Dos au Mur is a creation where Hip Hop dance mixes aesthetic and body performance in order to raise objective and intelligible sociological questions.

The expression dos au mur, meaning 'back to the wall,' originates from fencing; when a fencer steps back too much to avoid danger, he ends up without any other choice than having to fight his opponent. 

Starting from that principle, the wall – which is the central element of the show – is there to stimulate the survival instinct of the dancers when facing situations that we are all confronted with, because of us or in spite of everything. 

On a second level, the wall symbolizes the duality that humans create naturally as a unique source of reflection and landmark; the wall is first and foremost the materialization of our behavior, stretched between psychological border and building of constant antagonisms.

Dos au Mur invites us to think about the role of human beings and their share of responsibility for the two main ideas suggested by this expression.

French Breaking Season: Exit @ SIDC

8.jpg

"We are obsessed with the passage of time. Time gained, time wasted. Rather than drowning in a flavorless, solemn pathos, let us welcome you into our sweet madness. Behind our grey suits lie our unbridled excitement, joys, and sorrows. A man becomes a man the day he allows himself to be a child."

Exit shines a light on the deepest desires of three characters whose everyday lives leave no room for the slightest deviation from routine. When the curtain falls on their social lives, they awaken on stage.

Taking common situations as a point of departure, Soria Rem and Mehdi Ouachek imagine surprising, totally zany outcomes. They focus their choreographic quest on fluidity of movement, seeking a balance between power and softness.

Blending humor and frivolity, and pushing the imagination to the extreme, Exit is equally suitable for younger audiences and for the general public.

French Breaking Season: We are Monchichi @ SIDC

9.jpg

Shihya Peng was born in Taiwan, but she lives in Paris. Marco di Nardo was born in Naples, but he lives in Berlin. How do we come together when everything is pushing us apart? How do we perceive one another when soaring walls surround us? What language do we choose? How do we face the mountain of cultural stereotypes? What is this dance of interlacing and junction, of fissure and fusion?

It’s a dance of cat and mouse, a dance exploring antagonistic forces. Here, bodies flirt with irony a desire for joy, a desire for melancholy.

Shihya Peng and Marco Di Nardo’s bodies transform into two distorted mirrors – uncovering more about ourselves than we thought we knew.

They carry each other, fly, fall, exasperate each other, then get up and walk together. We are Monchichi is like a hidden fable, a secret story – a dance of universal scope – performed in sequences and accompanied with flashes of text. 

With each move, jump or chase, the two dancers search for a childhood memory, a country to live in together, or to live in with others. A dance of combat in search of harmony.

With humor, We are Monchichi speaks to the young and to the less young. It questions our inner multiple identities and the way they are jostled by others.
