The bedrock piece by duo Wang Ramirez creates a portrait of a new, urban, mobile and intercultural generation. Here, they choose their artistic language as freely as their life partner even if he/she speaks a foreign language… or several.
Dance is their language, but so are words. Sébastien, French with Spanish origins crosses choreographic paths with Honji, born in Frankfurt to Korean parents. Because in this open-minded world, everyone can be a cultural mix with blended origins.
Honji brings suppleness and Asian musicality to her movement, and Sébastien brings his Mediterranean vivacity. Together, they tackle Monchichi as they construct their life together – in perfect balance between masculine and feminine.
Their dance puts its virtuosity at the service of a quest for truth where nothing is left to conceal doubt or the difficulties in communicating, let alone the joys of togetherness.
In the end, Monchichi is a piece full of humor and self-deprecation, a joint self-portrait that testifies daily life with as much humor as poetry
