Creation for young audiences


MIRKIDS is a choreographic device for eight dancers which is presented as a physical kaleidoscope. It offers the young audience an experience and a journey that is both artistic and kinetic. The piece is based on perpetual movement to create a real "image factory" that is contemplative, fantastic and organic.

Lying around the cylindrical structure like a zoetrope, each child can be immersed in the celestial vision of the show. MIRKIDS takes hold of each child's imagination to animate and give meaning to the forms that take shape and diminish before our eyes.



MIRKIDS, a kinetic image and hypnotic kaleidoscope of bodies, invites us to take a vision of the female and male body multiplied like an image observed through a kaleidoscope.

This volume of bodies is formed by 8 dancers lying on the floor, just like the spectators, and is arranged in a herringbone pattern so as to cover the surface of a disc approximately 6 metres in diameter. The bodies of the dancers are organised, woven, interwoven and superimposed to create interdependent forms, where the notion of individuality is lost in favour of the whole to create a living picture. These images morph into each other to offer a time of reverie and contemplation that is intimate and specific to everyone.

Omnipresent geometry, whether symmetric or asymmetric, in confrontation or in unison, the dancers evolve for most of the piece in a flat position within the scenographic structure, separated from the audience by partitions. The choreography focuses on a perpetually cyclical movement, where the interplay of bodies is coordinated in an organic and synchronised way. The omnipresence of geometry throughout the choreography serves as a framework for the emergence of images and visions that are free to be interpreted and that can echo the oceanic, vegetal, animal or cellular world. The choreographed result could be compared to a rose window or an animated mandala.
