Presentation

ANIMAL Danser avec le Vivant [ANIMAL Dancing with the Living] is the convergence of Kaori Ito's choreographic universe with Manolo's quest for the Centaur. Everything is on view, nothing is hidden. As soon as the audience enters, horses, musicians, dancers, and technicians warm up and agree to a dialogue with the four black horses. Music and dance are seeking an animal language that is both wild and sacred. To be with the animal is to dance with the whole of nature. As a counterpoint to the collapse of biodiversity, it is a call for urgency, a call for alliance.

"The originality of the Théâtre du Centaure no longer needs to be demonstrated... Faced with the barbarity of reality, the wild beauty of the centaurs has an exceptional force of impact."

– Thierry Voisin, Télérama

Manolo & Camille, centaur artists and co-directors of the company, are working towards the realization of a utopia: the centaur, a link between people and animals. New artistic forms are born from this quest that are at the frontiers of theater, new circus, dance, and visual arts. Whether intimate or event-based, performances are given around the world.
