OSGEMEOS X FLYING STEPS X WANG RAMIREZ

Brazilian plastic artist duo OSGEMEOS designes figures and expansive elements for Flying Pictures, a new production by Flying Steps Entertainment, the most successful German company in developing urban dance shows.

Honji Wang and Sébastien Ramirez provide artistic direction to this creation, in collaboration with Vartan Bassil, founder and CEO of Flying Steps Entertainment.

Backed by an adaptation of Mussorgsky's famous piano piece, this project also features the work of a group of choreographers, the urban dance crew Flying Steps and live musicians.

The show premiere will take place in April at the Hamburger Bahnhof Museum in Berlin.

Wang Ramirez - ADELAIDE Press Review

ADELAIDE Press Review

Monchichi | JANUARY 12, 2019

The skill on show in Monchichi, in everything from the conception, the choreography, to the performance,
is tremendous.

(…) It’s not an easy thing to make a performance as intricate as this seems,
both easy and charmingly raw, but
Wang and Ramirez pull it off.

It moves quickly, and has the light, bubbly quality of French champagne as drunk in
a screwball comedy from the 1930s.
