A part of me… a part of you

Cleve Nitoumbi

© Paul Gaiffe

Ridicule, insult, humiliation and death threats, this was the everyday for Cleve Nitoumbi (born to Congolese parents in Ukraine), before he decided to flee. It was with this mistreated body that he began to dance, to defy the stares and force them to really look at him, he who they called “the hideous black-skinned monkey”.

Choreography (Street-jazz, dance hall, hip-hop, afro, voguing, waacking) Cleve Nitoumbi* (Ukraine) and Ivo Billy (Italy). With Suzanne Degennaro (Italy), Alex Grammont (France), Vanessa Kouassi (Italy), Vicky Mondor (France), Cleve Nitoumbi*, Mathieu Toussaint (France). Music Beidy Dia* (Mali).

Transition through Reproach Valley

Kubra Khademi

© Romain Guédé

For her first collective performance, Kubra Khademi, explores the experience of famine, disease,   environmental disaster, war and the injunction laid upon us, that we remain calm, patient and positive. But what really happened? How should we have reacted? And what is the role of art in such a situation? A cure for social pressure? “A reflection of a society”?

Collective performance by Kubra Khademi* (Afghanistan) With students from the Conservatoire national supérieur de musique et de danse de Lyon (CNSMD) and The École nationale supérieure des beaux-arts (ENSBA).

© Taxi Kebab

Taxi Kebab is the meeting between synthesisers and drum machines, modulated guitar, amplified buzuq and chanted song. With influences from a cultural and familial heritage (Chaâbi, Gnawa trance, Middle Eastern music…), the duo’s music travels the roads of Morrocco by night, and through its landscapes with a raw, psychedelic disoriented and disoriental sound.

With Romain Henry and Lea Jiqqir.

Far from prohibitions, they can now sing about their right to exist.
