Initiatives

Participatory projects, projects in the educational environment, and danced seminars are all protean labs connected with one another thanks to one of the main focuses of the company: a creation department dedicated to the exploration of human trajectories through the concept of resistance, and of resilience. The two choreographers’ questionings about the relationship between the Human-beings and the Territory spring up, becoming a common thread.

We want to create enablers…through experimentation, research, from performative projects to writing residencies. It is all about providing shared spaces for artistic exchanges about the city and the society, creating sensible trajectories and experiencing them together, providing common space for encounters, make a step towards other people through art performance, inventing In situ moments with demonstrations, projects, that could imbricate inside the territory in harmony with its own dynamics.
We want to create a space of confrontation through communication, discussion. It is a blessing to convey the tools for creation, knowing that every creative process is unique, leading to a unique outcome, one window in the essential to the co-construction of the City.

This project was created alongside the middle school and La Cité Bébèl through performances within schools, within the city, and within the nursing home Les Roses de Lima. The piece was created from the earlier creation “Breathless…”. The company carried out encounters with dancers—followed by debates triggered by excerpts of the work—and workshops with teenagers.

Since 2017, the Archives Nationales and Pôle Sup’93 come together with many structures of the Quatre-Chemins neighborhood in order to create and experiment together on a territory shared by two cities. “At The Crossroads of Memories”, with “Les Voix de la Contestation” and “Polis” has brought together the audience of both La Mangrove and the association 4 Chem’, and the students of Pôle Sup’93 through the writing of a common History intertangling Dance, Music, and Theater.

Dreaming together at the Crossroad, imagining the future with its community, while giving voice to the individual and collective memory of a neighborhood.
