The « Nobodies» really exist ?


« Le rien existe aussi bien que le quelque chose » Héraclite d’Héphèse.

This sentence was projected on a big screen during a scene of our creation Politeïes on September 27th, in response to a violent remark expressed in a highly debatable political discourse… The men of power, the economic giants are always afraid of large popular gatherings. With Newtopia, we seek creative solidarity that promotes cooperative arts, as opposed to exploitation models that threaten life on our small planet. Certainly, we are “just” a handful of dance enthusiasts and some of us have not “succeeded” in the myth of the career, but we are confident that thousands, if not millions of handfuls of “nobodies” are forming in this moment in order to imagine a better world.
