Ioannis Mandafounis

Cie Ioannis Mandafounis
De Mélanie Fréguin

The Company Ioannis Mandafounis creates a cultural initiative based on exchange by making short dance clips for and by the habitants of the city.

Wishing to re-create a dialogue between artists and the cityʼs inhabitants, the company will collect video clips, either by going door-to-door, or in public spaces. The cityʼs inhabitants will be encouraged to dance freely in front of our camera. These short dances made in this way, alone or in small groups, will mostly be lmed in an outdoor setting in which the participantsʼ bodies can express freely. Indeed the street, perceived as a place of meeting and social interaction, creates an universal atmosphere with which all of the inhabitants can identify.
The clips will then be compiled in a unique dance film and then projected during a cultural space. The inhabitants will be invited to “discover themselves” at the event.

Through this simple yet unusual staging the company hopes to open up these spaces and to connect the inhabitants of the city in one place, at an event for which they are an integral element, and where they will, in fact, be performers. “B-Cut” desires to place the population at the heart of the device, at the heart of the action. While being prepared for the event, we will also remain conscious of the emotions of the participants in relation to their involvement in the event.
