New show 2021
From free jazz to electro, Earthbound celebrates the richness of a rebel and underground dance scene. Since their 2015 duo Iskio, Johanna Faye and Saïdo Lehlouh have developed a fluent and dynamic personal body language which triggers true danced conversations. With this new piece, the artists question the relationship between the choreographers, the dancers and the audience through improvisation.
Exploring unknown spaces and looking for vulnerability in the movement are some of the instructions given by Johanna Faye and Saïdo Lehlouh to Eartbound’s performers in order to push their abilities on stage. Dancers, musicians and sometimes both, they embody hip hop’s many aesthetics, cultures and lifestyles expressed through movement. Each performer’s very own personality is the key to the authenticity which is incarnated in each fiber of their body and sound modulation.
Earthbound is a collective jam session which renews itself for each show, giving the audience the freedom to transcend their expectations and approach the performing arts in a different way.
