The danse piece “Tropique du Képone” to tour Guadeloupe from March 19 to 24

Dance enthusiasts will be delighted to discover the latest creation starring two talented choreographers and performers: Myriam Soulanges and Marlène Myrthil.

Presented by Kameleonite and Myriam Soulanges Companies, “Tropique du Képone” is a dance piece with Afro-futuristic overtones: “In it, we emphasize the urgency to act and the need to get out of imposed orders to respond to the current worrying situation in the territories of Martinique and Guadeloupe. For us, it’s about projecting ourselves into a victorious future in order to bring to the struggles of the past and our present, through the art of the detour and fugue, a movement of confidence and healing”, they say.

Through this new creation, the two artists “reaffirm their encounter while continuing their research focused on ecological issues in the Caribbean and their profound impact on bodies and imaginations”.
