First representation on the 6th of October 2020 at the Sillon of Petit-Couronne (France)
« Faraëkoto » will be a choreographic play interpreted by two hip-hop dancers. It will draw on the tale « The Two Abandoned Kids », Malagasy version on the european tale « Hansel and Gretel », to revisit it and to confront it to today society’s look.
The original tale tells the adventures of Fara and Koto, two Malagasy kids, who both have a physical difference. They can’t help their parents in the fields work, therefore they are abandoned and lost in the forest. But Koto, overriding his difference, will do everything he can to get them out of this misadventure.
This new choreographic creation, accessible from the age of 5, will question both fraternal relationships and our society’s rapport to difference.
« As for all of my plays, hip-hop dance is central in my artistic commitment. When I started creating for the young audience, magic came into my creativity. Since the beggining of my artistic work, I question current societal topics, that often are apparently serious, but not to consider them in a dark or bitter way, but to talk about (here) abandonment or difference (or indifference) in a positive way, like they are a step in life, in which hope can appear. » Séverine Bidaud
