News May – June 2019


We are witnessing – on a daily basis – global clashes. The old paternalistic and antagonistic world and the new utopian and solidary world. Even if not everything is black or white, polarities seem to be manifesting everywhere… French street riots, immigration crisis, Yemen, extreme right-wing ideologies, acceleration of productivism and destructive consumption frenzy, etc. Art, one of the pillars of any society, remains a place of vital reflection for the renewal and evolution of our species. Singularity and universality in constant equilibrium. Taking the time to contemplate and act without the constraints of utilitarianism. We will do our hummingbird tasks joyfully, to participate in these transformational processes of our worlds.

For us, assuming the creative act by cultivating a sensitive body is already an act of emancipation.

The rehearsals for Politeïes / Newtopia 7.4, at the Pleiade(FR37520) in September, are moving ahead and making us laugh (among other things…). Moreover, we have just confirmed, for this same event, the invitation and participation of an artist from Greece, living on the island of Milos: Filio Louvari. She is a director, choreographer, dancer, singer and currently director of the Milos Island Theatre Festival in Les Cyclades. More info on the event page soon: Newtopia 7.4!

Another piece of news: our friend Charline Valenchon,  has made us a beautiful joint newsletter in the form of a booklet, as part of her civic service with Omnivion and  Arpents d’Art. Downloadable here (in french only) : Newsletter Transept37 !
