Compagnie par Terre / Anne Nguyen
Autarcie (….)

Duration : 50 min

Autarcie (….) is a strategy game where, for 50 minutes, four dancers follow an fast-paced ritual, in-between frontal dancing and free digression. Using their respective break, popping or waacking techniques as an abstract vocabulary, each imposes a strong personality on the stage, venturing in the space in search for a territory, alliances and hierarchy. The front of the stage is the rallying point where the dancers unite to build a warring dance for the public. The internal mechanisms of this agitated “tribe”, with its power stakes and exploration of possible harmony points, deploy on stage to the pulsing unbridled rhythm of organic percussions.

ONIISAN (CH)
Beatbox show

Duration : 20 min

A microphone, an amp, a good public. For Oniisan the bare necessities suffice to achieve happiness. And to take the audience far, far away, at the edge of a feverish ever-changing music influenced by hip-hop and electro, reggae, pop or ragga musics alike.

Composed of two talented multifaceted artists, Speaker B and Keumart, this group of passionate and enthralling musicians set up a beatbox show aiming at renewing the genre. Far from the simple vocal performance, the two accomplices, several time battle champions, endeavour to get off the beaten track and to find within themselves the correct tone, the stinging humoristic reference, the melody that will enthrall the audience. By combining their beatboxing, which they consider a true communication art form, to other unexpected disciplines (theater, dance, comedy,…), they offer an original performance that always hits the mark. Their secret is simple : a concept applied in all sincerity and a perfect alchemy between the audience and themselves.

Compagnie Viz-O (CH)

Duration : 10 min

The Viz-O group, which appeared last year on this very stage, comes back with a special performance for the seventh edition of the Festival. The group was formed in 2007 by Perla Miscioscia and Kimberly Kwek. In 2008, Kimberly decided to completely stop dancing to dedicate herself to her studies, Perla continued her journey in the world of hip-hop dancing, and seeing her students improve and follow her in her artistic projects, she decides to create a new group and keeps the name Viz-O. Very quickly, Viz-O becomes more than a group but rather a little family whose strength relies, according to Perla, on their unity and the trust and love of the members for one another. The group now counts 14 active members. They have won several competitions including the IDO Swiss championships, l’Esprit du Cercle, the Battle de l’Escalade and the Dance on Peace.
