Finding your place, precarious as it may be. You fight for it. Fight to keep it. Beyond the inner workings of society. Beyond conventions. Beyond the common good. Beyond individual liberties.
You play around the rules to keep going. Even to the point of transgression. Even if it means doing wrong. Even if those put upon rise up. They believe in something better. They are committed. In the face of all opposition. Against all odds.
Single-handedly. They fight. At strength’s end, still they build. Something different. Differently. A foundation for the new. For their sake. To exist. Caught in the gears, they combine. Blend in with the crowd. Again. For how long?

Nonchalant and uninterested in consensus, the Dyptik company dances its identity and revolt with force and authenticity.
We are committed in our relationship to alterity, to other people and the body. We explore what it means to be human. With special attention to humankind’s history, we consider the intimate and the depth of things.
Through artistic creation and transmission, when we accompany and when we host, or when we bring people together… We dig for the visceral, what is most powerful in each and every one. Sometimes to exhaustion.
Dyptik was founded in 2012 by choreographers Mehdi Meghari and Souhail Marchiche. The company is based in Saint-Etienne, France and has the support of the city of Saint-Etienne, the DRAC, the region Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes and the Loire department.
As early as 2012, Dyptik started exploring the theme of identity, through two choreographic pieces: En quête (2012) and Dyptik (2014).
The company then went on to tackle the topic of revolt with D-Construction (2016), Dans l’engrenage (2017) and Le Cri (2018).
Besides its creative work, the company has been developing many cultural initiatives, among which TRAX, an annual festival created in 2014.
The company is committed to the values of sharing, cultural exchange and engaging with other people. The company opens its Saint-Etienne studios to artists and the public so as to make them a true platform for residencies and performances.
The Company is an associate artist with the Maison de la Danse in Lyon for the 2017/2018 season as part of the European Creative Pole, and with the Théâtre de Cusset for the period 2017-2020.
