« A tiny bit absurd but serious all the way ! »
Neptumium Ratons is a dystopia of our society. It’s a colorful, hierarchical, funny, absurd but also very serious world. The piece allows the artists to tackle issues linked to the existence of a group and to share them with the audience. This is what the collective calls “moving from the intimate to the universal”. The artists present their own personal experiences in a way that the audience can identify.
The body is at the core of this project. Research allowed to hybridize circus movement & hip hop dance technique in order to create a unique style.
The artists wish to mould their own body language, hanging in the air on aerial straps and hoops, bouncing on cubes or making the theater’s walls vibrate by way of otherworldly body percussion.
A young franco-belgian company founded in 2016, Des hommes qui portent et des femmes qui tiennent works towards a mixity of the arts and the breaking down of the barriers that separate them. Their goal is to open up their art and culture in general to the largest possible audience and to promote social cohesion. In order to do so, in each one of their pieces, the artists offer a statement & a concept that pushes the spectators to think outside the box, together. The company is deeply rooted in urban & hip hop culture.
Their first show, FACE A : Block Party [a 2017 creation] – a 20′ short form duo piece destined for the street, currently on tour – allowed the artists to develop a certain hybridization of the movement & lay down the foundations of a group reflection focused on identity.
Neptumium Ratons, the collective’s second creation, is a natural extension of this quest for corporal identity.
No article for now. It's a new show !
