place of creation

Scène nationale de l'Agora

 

We are the reflect of our multicultural and multiethnical society. Just like France changing and naturally wondering about its past, its present and above all its future, we wanted to review our different paths, origins, which, eventually turn to be so similar. 

It is no longer a question of dance here. As we are throwned into the heart of an initiation journey full of encounters, flights, migrations and confrontations, this search for our roots brings us to the discovery of rythm and music, and thus reveals us our history and personal experience. This path starts both in Central Africa, West Africa and Asia. It is very often tortuous, paintful, even chaotic but it brought us all to the same point : France. And to a second family : The Wanted Posse.
