K. Danse (choreographer Jean-Marc Matos), proposes, for the 2024-2025 season: (see photos, video excerpts and short description below)

K. Danse is a multidisciplinary company involved in numerous creative projects mixing contemporary dance and digital arts.
The choreographic approach of the Compagnie K. Danse develops a contemporary movement language by the dialectic confrontation between the physical body (lived, experienced) and the visual body (seen, virtual).

Our projects are both distinct in their formats, and linked by a particular attention paid to the hybridization between live performance and digital environments, with a special attention towards sustainability and inclusion.

These five projects are both distinct in their format, and connected via a particular attention paid to the hybridization of contemporary dance and digital arts:
« Myselves », « RCO », « Maraya Arrouh », « F_AI_L ».

It will be presented on December 12, 2024, at the Kiasma Theater, Castelnau-le-Lez (Montpellier)

« RCO (Radical Choreographic Object) »: playful and reflexive performance, created with Sarah Fdili Alaoui, which invites the audience to participate physically, at will, invited both by four dancers and via messages sent on their smartphones.

This performance, still very alive to this day, can be presented in any indoor or outdoor space, at night or during day time, and can be part of any specific event (inauguration, opening of an exhibition, etc.).
