Contemporary Dance

Yo Gee Ti National Choregraphique Centre of Créteil & Val de Marne Käfig Company

Mourad Merzouki, who was previously shown in China with his show 'Recital', in collaboration with dancers from Sichuan and Beijing in 2008, dazzles us again with this choreography inspired by his encounters with contemporary Taiwanese dancers. Yo Gee Ti , which means 'organic', confirms the freedom and creative power of the French choreographer. Here, hip-hop goes beyond a simple technical prowess and slips into the skin of contemporary dance. Choreography that is lively, haunting, and poetic. Without a doubt, Mourad Merzouki offers us his most accomplished show. A fascinating alchemy!

Feng Shui or Water and Wind Métamorphoz Company & Dangster Company

Two prestigious companies, Dangster (China) and Metamorphoz (France), combine traditional dances from Yunnan and hip hop. Is knowing oneself easier than knowing things? Have our technological advances taken us further away from what is essential, the knowledge of oneself? Through this creation that blends modern urban dance and the traditional dance of Yunnan minorities, Mohamed Rouabah invites us to rediscover our deep self, to free our emotions by getting carried away in a musical composition by Hacène Merzouki, by mixing neo-contemporary rhythms and the sounds from Yunnan.
