Multiple award-winning Company Wang Ramirez is a duo of artist-dancer-choreographers. As creative directors and performers, they bring dance towards music, film, fashion, contemporary art, and advertisement. In Monchichi, Honji Wang (ballerina, German of Korean descent) and Sébastien Ramirez (B-boy, French of Spanish origin) confront identity, love, and the enigma of cultural difference. Hip-hop meets contemporary dance in an emotionally sophisticated, category-defying fusion as the performers’ own back stories inform every powerful movement. Navigating the perceived divide, propelled by the music of Everydayz/+∞, the dance loosens and transcends such contrasts, bursting open into startling new forms.

Co-producers: Act’art – Conseil général de Seine-et-Marne, Le Théâtre* – Scène Nationale de Narbonne, Initiatives d’Artistes en Danses Urbaines, Tanzhaus NRW Düsseldorf, Communauté de communes de la Région Lézignanaise

“Their pieces are not only beautiful, they are socially, politically involved and exceed the borders of each performer’s personal history.”
