Cie Mood/RV6K, Herbe folle
France - 2014 - 20 minutes

Saturday 26th of September - 2pm
Open session 
Garden - La Briqueterie

Across time, men and women have traveled the world and crossed borders and oceans in search of a better life. Fleeing their far-off native lands, they migrated to the city, drawn by its light and promises. Pushed to its outskirts, generation by generation, they slowly took up roots in these abandoned and concrete-filled spaces. And like weeds that sprout in unexpected places, a culture emerged from these inhospitable lands.

Through his body, Herve Sika leads us to experience these people’s daily struggle to overcome obstacles, build up their identity and tinker with their own place in the world. The Herbe Folle dance expresses their pain as much as their desire to be accepted for who they are. Rebellious, vigorous and resilient by will, it carries a new hope for the future.

Herve Sika, choreographer, dancer and educator, founded the Cie MOOD/RV6K in 2006. This was the starting point for his personal research on movement where Hip Hop dance represents the first step from which he explores new territories and new aesthetics. This led him to work with artists in Montreal and Brussels. From meetings to active collaboration with choreographers such as Hamid Ben Mahi and Christine Bastin, stage directors Mohamed Rouabhi, Guy Alloucherie and Ahmed Madani, the historian Gérard Noiriel among others, he's precise in his approach. Since then, Herve Sika commits to his work to develop a choreographic language based on an argument rather than emphasizing the impressive hip hop tecniques. Lately, his open approach has brought him to create several contemporary circus shows for The Académie Fratellini and the National Centre for Circus Arts. As each of his projects is a reflection of his political and social commitment, his sixth and last show, Herbe Folle, is rooted in his 10 years of experience of meeting audiences through artistic participatory projects
