10 October, 17.00-00.00 ONLINE
Compagnie Arcosm, France
Bounce! happily discusses the failure, an universal experience, an unexpected start for a new way of living: the beginning of an adventure, gushing, questioning how to bounce! The quartet moved in space, musicians tune, dancers heat up. Gestures are febrile, uncertain… What if nothing happens the way we expected? But we have to try, alone or with others. Pushing, yelling, climbing, playing, dancing, whispering, singing… try any way and go further.

Compagnie Arcosm is funded by le Ministère de la Culture et de la Communication/ DRAC Rhône-Alpes and by the Région Rhône-Alpes. Arcosm get also the support of la Ville de Lyon.
The Arcosm company was created in 2001 and is currently co-directed by Thomas Guerry, a dancer and
choreographer and Camille Rocailleux, a percussionist, pianist player and composer.
The company main objective is to build bridges between different artistic disciplines and languages; music,
dance and singing are the root of this artistic approach. The main elements of the human voice (rhythm, melody,
timbre and tone) are closely linked to the musical world, and give vividness and theatricality to the characters.
The artists are required to use their personal skills and competences but also to explore less-familiar areas of
artistic expression. Combined with highly-mastered techniques, these new ways of expression create the
sensitive and emotional breaks the company is looking for in order to achieve its artistic aims.
