Improvised music and movement

AMiNiMA is a visual and musical poem that combines song, rhythm and dance movement… Two improvising musicians question the zest for life that runs through us and drives us. Inspired by early childhood, they question the foundations of being and essential states such as moving, meeting, playing, inspiring, inventing… The body games, sounds and materials resonate with the sensory and essential state of early childhood. Opening the doors of perception to the imaginary, music is born from movement, sound and voice from gesture. The encounter gives rise to a breath of life, a breath of life that comes alive.

This show is performed in childcare centres, media libraries, museums, gardens, theatres, private homes, etc. It resonates with the audiences and the spaces in which it takes place. Young and old alike are invited to join us for an artistic experience that transcends age and culture, to discover what connects us all.

This “in situ” form accompanies the creation of ANiMA, theatrical and scenographic piece. These two projects are inspired by the landscapes of Réunion and the island’s marine and terrestrial flora and fauna.

AMiNiMA was presented at the Festival Jeune et très jeune public in Gennevilliers and at the Festival Petits et Grands in Nantes in 2019. The project was the subject of a creative residency in the landscapes and nurseries of the island, combining creative workshops, training for early childhood professionals and local artists, writing in the Mafat circus, and performances for families.
