MED FM Creation 1999

Happy who like Ulysses has made a beautiful trip…and runs aground in the heart of the Mediterranean, on an island that captivates the senses with a subtle blend of musisc and dances. An island that is a gigantic radio antenna, an initiatory place where nature, culture and the supernatural merge in the sea.

Med FM is a Mediterranean island laboratory from which interrogations are fused, contradictions are telescoped, meanings emerge.
The articulation of different choreographic, sound and digital scripts and gestures, contemporary, African, and hip hop sign the first creation of the Cie Art Mouv’.

Ile Danse Festival, Ajaccio - And it is precisely the Med FM show that seemed the most emblematic of the festival's approach. On a rich sampling of Tommy Lawson, the choreographic figures glide over each other. Around waves hip-hop, arise duo, African jerks, winks to the oriental dance... The fluidity of the dance remains nevertheless intact and sparkling.

Video Studio Dance Festival, Bastia - Med FM, a Mediterranean walk sensitively with the influence. In this work of great honesty, we were surprised by a dancer Carolyn Carlson, Juha Pekka Marsalo, who was able to seize the basics of hip-hop while keeping his style. 

Hélène Taddei has always been able to transmit her dance while respecting the personality of each: the one, nervous, of Nasser Koubeb, the creamy one of Ricardo Missing, the sensual one of Vanessa Leixtrey and her own, piquant and serious.
