Open-air danced theater

Joyful participative stroll

Duration : 75 minutes

This desire for Holi is a desire of tenderness, sharing and friendship, to fight against sectarian ideas or fear of the others others.

It is a desire to be inspired by the Holi - a secular hindus celebration - to create a collective contemporary stroll mixing and gathering together of all.
A ritual to consider others as alter-egos and share together a colorful explosion of joy through a riot of hues.

During the Holi, people throw gulal powder in the air showing great joy and mirth, celebrating unity, acceptance of diversity through these colourful embraces, as these Free Hugs offered to strangers in publics places.

The Color of time will be resolutely focussed on contemporary dance-theatre, very far from « Bollywood ».


Press

"The crowd kept on growing. The languorous dance gave way to the finale where public, dancers and volunteers are literally covered with powder. Guaranteed results with much laughter in a large rainbow. "
The Union -. 9 June 2013

"An explosion of colors hits the capital of culture. In an excited atmosphere, 4000 Marseilles-people followed The Color of Time wandering, collective choreography and trance-techno music. An ideal final conclusion with this beautiful rainbow sky festival of colors"
Télérama (blog) -21 May 2013

"The throbbing rythms guided their struggles, evocations of the rituals that go round the trance. Then thousands of hands of all colors rise simultaneously and rythmically swaying while orange clouds fwere flying above the multicolored crowd. Clothes strewn with sharp impacts, faces like fireworks form a chromatic java that dapple the street its communicative impulses "
La Provence -21 May 2013
