Compagnie Oposito

Kori Kori

Kori Kori is a musical theatre and dance performance interpreted by 18 actor-performers and 4 musicians and this show does not tell one, but many stories.

It is neither didactic nor pretends to possess the truth, it simply tells the stories of men and women moving forward through life. An emotionally stirring chorus that shifts earnestly from one state to another. Like a book of images. This multifaceted performance reflects humanity and human deeds, simple and complex at the same time, like life itself.

It is an allegory in which lyrical music, rock, waltz, tango and ballet coexist. Beautiful, disobedient and illogical, like the world we live in.

This is a show that emerges, takes off and then disappears.

For thirty years, cie Oposito has crossed the roads from Noisy-le-Sec to Addis Ababa. Expressing its art in the streets, boulevards, squares, on the water and the sea. Imagining modern rituals and scenarios that can slip into the life of the city and highlight its hidden, forgotten and unknown parts. Looking for the movement that suits the crowd best, Oposito draws and creates images that are not afraid of spaces, noises or storms.

Oposito continues to explore theatrical expressions in itinerant shows. A story that appears, slips and disappears in the heart of the city, in which the viewer's perception is a physical sensation coupled with a poetic emotion. The parade is one of the signs most suited to the language of crowds and large spaces. Its movement is built in the form of successive appearances, a rhythm that takes the public by surprise to embark it as an unconditional passenger of our dreams.
