Sur l’île de Darsheen

Performance for 1 dancer and 3 musicians | Creation 2020 | Duration 50’

For the past ten years, Laurence Yadi and Nicolas Cantillon, choreographers of Company 7273, have been working on a dance that could be composed like music can. This music is linked to their several travels around the world. Each trip was an opportunity to meet musicians. These encounters participated in the development of their own dance style, the Multi Styles FuittFuitt.

L’île de Darsheen is an intercultural place where we meet to share a knowledge which will become a poetic object. Experimentation will be the basis of this experience that will invite and allow the audience to create their own island of imagination.

Musicians Sir Richard Bishop, Simphiwe Tshabalala and Maurice Louca will join Nicolas Cantillon on stage.
