The Company shares strong bonds with la Casa Musicale, an open place for artistic experimentation and creation in Perpignan, and with its director
Michel Vallet.
 
We were invited to the premises to share and explore practical rigging skills. This was the opportunity for choreographers Honji Wang & Sébastien Ramirez, as well as for Kai Gaedtke, official rigger of the Company, to work with two young performing arts professionals: Simon Nyiringabo and Lukas Halmagyi.
At the end of this residency they both joined the Company's team.
 
During this week, the Company also invited a group of students to discover the technical aspect behind the magic
of this practice.

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.
