The freshness and energy of young « Grenades » in the repertoire of six major choreographers. An international win-win dance.
The juvenile freshness and the hybrid technique of Groupe Grenade performers - who refuse to choose between classical, contemporary, jazz or hip-hop dance because the world is half-breed - has forged their unique talent. Driven by choreographer Josette Baïz since its creation in 1990, this company that brings together nearly thirty young dancers moves along a suitable path. At Josette Baïz’s request, six major contemporary choreographers entrusted excerpts from their repertoires to the company. Canadian Crystal Pite, Korean Eun-Me Ahn, Anglo-Bengali Akram Khan, Israeli Barak Marshall, Belgian Wim Vandekeybus and Australian Lucy Guerin headline this wonderful transmission program that lives up to its name: « From East to West, from Melbourne to Vancouver », landing in Aix-en-Provence, where the company is based, and drawing a dancing arch that brings all together.
