In Leçons de Ténèbres, four bodies, three adults and a child become the mouthpieces of stories that have been forgotten or that we have tried to make disappear. In turn, they bring forth visions and assist and challenge them. For this new creation, Betty Tchomanga continues her research on Voodoo cults and crosses them with questions of climatic and social emergency.

From South Africa to Jamaica, from the United States to Angola... The young Brazilian choreographer Ana Pi gives a tour of the world of urban dance, through ten cities and ten different types of dance. Each street dance is linked to a city, its violence and injustice, but also to vibrant energy. Ana Pi made Tour du monde des danses urbaines in 2014. Since then, she has presented the play more than 400 times around the world, for audiences of all ages.

This dance solo by Betty Tchomanga evolves around the mythological figure of Mami Wata (‘Mammy Water’). She is a goddess of water, a figure from the depths of night, infused with power and sexuality. This stranded mermaid faces the people watching her. This mermaid jumps. Jumps to resist. Jumps to reach. Jumps to become. Jumps to die. Jumps to exist.
