The Company

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. Influenced by poetry and mythology, but also by the History of our society's evolutions, Delphine Cammal and Hubert Petit-Phar explore through each of their creations recurring themes: resiliency, identity, the relationship between Humans/Territories, the flows and memories, galvanizing 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...
