Creation 2024


CORPOS is a laboratory carried by Hubert Petit-Phar and Augusto Soledade, choreographer from Bahia, accompanied by dancers from Bahia and Guadeloupe.

The exploration is based on the meeting between the two artists who share a reflection on the stigmatization of the black body, the body as a political tool. This project is woven between the artists.

"In a world where aesthetic, political, symbolic borders interfere more and more in a porous ebb and flow, how is the look on the human of today. The desire to exchange on this problematic of the corporal and sexual representation with Brazilian artists starts from the notion of the glance carried on the other, and this glance is dependent on its sensory, cultural or material environment. At the crossroads of our cultures, of our multiple identities, what place do we leave to the singularity of our bodies?
