W.A.M. - We are Monchichi

Shihya Peng was born in Taiwan but lives in Paris. Marco Di Nardo was born in Naples, but lives in Berlin. How to meet when we have good reasons to avoid each other? How to get along when the ramparts are high? Which language to choose? What to do in the face of clutter caused by cultural stereotypes? What is this dance of weaving and joining, of interstice and fusion? This dance plays with cat and mouse; she works the antagonistic forces as a sculptor her subject.
Here, bodies have their irony, their desire for joy, sometimes their melancholy. Shihya Peng and Marco Di Nardo tend their bodies, like two distorting mirrors, where one discovers oneself more than one recognizes oneself. They wear, fly, fall, do not support each other, then get up and walk together.
We guess an immersed fable, an underground fiction, a dance with universal reach in sequence, accompanied by fragments of texts (Fabrice Melquiot, writing on the set). The two performers seek in a gesture, a leap, a race, a memory of childhood, a country to live with the other, with others. Dance of battle for harmony.
With humor, We are Monchichi speaks to all the audience and questions the multiple identities that we carry in us, as well as the way the other can come to shake them up.

Wang, Honji

Wang's dance language is an abstraction of hip hop dance and has influences of earlier martial arts and ballet  training. She is recognised as an artist who brings contemporary and hip  hop together in an exceptionally organic fashion.

Together with Sébastien Ramirez, Honji Wang received the Bessie Award 2013 as "Outstanding Performer" following the presentation of AP15 at the Apollo Theatre in New York. Their work Monchichi was also one of the 2017 Bessie Award nominees for "Outstanding Production" following its performance at BAM Fisher.

Wang was invited to Madonna’s final auditions in New York, where her outstanding performance earned her an invitation to  tour and perform for the Rebel Heart Tour.
In 2016, Wang and Ramirez received a comission from Sadler's Wells to direct and perform a dance work made to Nitin Sawhney’s album Dystopian Dream.
Wang was invited as a guest artist to perform a duo with acclaimed British choreographer Akram Khan titled The Pursuit of Now, which was accompanied by well-known pianist Shahin Novrasli.
She also collaborated with the most avant-garde female flamenco dancer Rocío Molina in the duet Felahikum, as well as with New York City Ballet principal dancer Sara Mearns in the duet NO.1.

Plasson, Fabien

Born in 1977, Fabien Plasson is a video director specialized in the field of performing arts (dance , music, etc).

During his studies at the Ecole Nationale des Beaux-Arts de Lyon (joined in 1995) Fabien discovered video art. He was trained by various video artists (Joel Bartoloméo Pascal Nottoli , Eric Duyckaerts , etc) .
He first experimented with the creation of installations and cinematic objects.

From 2001 to 2011, he was in charge of Ginger & Fred video Bar’s programming at La Maison de la Danse in Lyon. He discovered the choreographic field and the importance of this medium in the dissemination, mediation and pedagogical approach to dance alongside Charles Picq, who was a brilliant video director and the director of the video department at that time.

Today, Fabien Plasson is the video director at La Maison de la Danse and in charge of the video section of Numeridanse.tv, an online international  video library, and continues his creative activities, making videos of concerts, performances and also creating video sets for live performances.
