RETOURAMONT AN ORIGINAL URBAN ART

It is a major player in vertical dance field.
It presents the relationship that everyone feels with public space and tries to shake it up.

City is for us a polymorphous field of exploration where we note down a specific writing.

The dramaturgy of our pieces come from specificities found in architecture, materials, volumes, void, relationship with urban space, and societal challenges.

Surrounded by sculptors, video creators, scientists, musicians, dancers, circus artists, etc., we try to understand the signs and materials in public space and use them in our creations.
