RESIDENCY: COMPAGNIE URBAINE
Compagnie Urbaine’s dancers will be in residency at Flux Laboratory to prepare the Première of Zup, a show under the artistic direction of Nicolas Musin.
A visionary piece which will make us exercise at the Skatepark of Planpalais thanks to a top collaboration between dance and urban slide (BMX, Roller and Skateboard), parkour, voltige, musique and video mapping.
40 Swiss and international artists will stretch the limits imposed by an exceptional setting with the aim of making the street life a big show and appealing to the public’s imagination and pleasure.
The story ? A man and a woman that, looking for their identity and immersed in the urban and remarkable night, will share their intimate and epic dreams…
Transformed into a theatre scene and full of video projections, the bowls of the Skatepark will offer the dancers and performers an insolit set in which they will challenge the weightlessness and will give body to the urban dizziness imagined by Compagnie Urbaine, a creative team with artists of very different profiles and impressive curriculums.
During a month, the Skatepark will be an ephemeral theatre, a wooden structure that will constitute a new place for the street art’s expression.
16 exceptional performances from September 20th until October 11th, at 20h30.
