TOUT-MONDE TEENS! – BREAKDANCE WORKSHOP
Little Haïti Cultural Complex – Outdoor Stage
Saturday, Mar. 16th, 2019, 4.30pm
The “Biosphere” Project is a three-act saga named: “The Alpha”, “Sapiens”, and “The Omega”. The first part, the Alpha, was created on Saturday November 25, 2017 in Sonis’s Cultural Center. José Bertogal choreographed its creation and created the soundtrack. Biosphere was presented by the Mounka Company and was co-produced by AGIC (Guadeloupean Agency of Cultural Engineering) and the Soulshine Association. The first act, The Alpha, represents the different steps to form Earth and life evolution: Big Bang, passage of time, the rain, oceans, emergence of life, first cells, homo sapiens. The dance also explores the four elements: earth, water, fire and air, and their fusion which created God.
This workshop will enable students to learn about the scenography of such a dance project, from the dance itself to the clothing, the soundtracks and the lights. The public will learn about the evolution of Humans and Beings, in the context of the “Echo-Natures” edition of the Tout-Monde Festival. The teenagers will be invited to partake in dance courses and learn dance steps and break-dance moves that are in the show. Teenagers are invited with their families to watch the official show performed by the artists on a different date.
