COMPAGNIE LA MANGROVE
The company was created in 2007. The mangrove swamp, this delicate ecosystem in which we can lose ourselves, liberate ourselves, this concept of “Tout-Monde/Whole World” (Édouard Glissant), is a platform imagined by Delphine Cammal and Hubert Petit-Phar as a confrontational space, in which roots intertwine, evolve, allowing possibilities and inevitable escapes.
The research, questioning the relationship between Humans/Territories, borders, flows and memories galvanizes their creative processes. ”Aesthetical borders, political borders, symbolic borders”: both choreographers question the relationship between borders, the bull’s eye, polycentralities, furtherness, remoteness, porosity, with a focus on the urgency of fighting together against identity withdrawals.
Evolving in both Seine-Saint-Denis (Paris, France), and Guadeloupe, the company designs territory projects.
