From the show
An infinite dose of elegance and humour that speaks of otherness and diversity, apprehensions and encounters. The dance, the music, the aesthetics: everything is savored, whatever your age.
La Dauphiné Libéré
Virtuoso passages to ironic anecdotes, from personal solos to a few reflections on identity. All with poetry and imagination to let the spirit print what it wants on the dance. Proof of success: a total silence in the room yet full of children and teenagers.
Danses avec la plume
They are young, beautiful, funny ... But everything opposes them. Two planets so far away from each other… Her moves are gentle and with real finesse, he is energetic and skilful.
Conflicts, misunderstandings or, on the contrary, moments of connection and harmony, every note performed with touch, grace, poetry and humour.
La Dauphiné Libéré
Mixing storytelling, hip-hop, classical and contemporary dance, two dancers from different worlds search for ways to understand each other in a humorous game of cat and mouse.
Sharing four cultures between them, Shihya Peng (born in Taiwan and living in Paris) and Marco Di Nardo (born in Naples and living in Berlin) invite young audiences into their story as they find common ground and ways of communicating. With each move, jump or chase, they seek to find a country to live in together, and to live in with others.
Speaking to the young - and the not so young - W.A.M. playfully explores the search for harmony in today’s multicultural world.
