Se chercher essentially means muddling through, wanting to make one’s fortune against all odds. Ivorian dancer Ordinateur – also known as Magic Feet – gathers young dancers who he is friends with and who have come to Europe from various African countries. They dare to seek a new beginning in cities such as Paris or Barcelona, struggling with risk and unforeseen situations. They were legends of urban dance in their countries of origin and throughout the African continent. In Europe, they need to carefully balance their contacts within the African diaspora with the entry into the European dance scene. Migration policies, racism, and ignorance towards African dance styles – their path is paved with obstacles. Les Chercheurs approaches all these topics with high-level choreographies and texts on clever strategies and a display of courage for a new beginning.
The art and the passion for it on the one hand, the political demands for anti-racism and better working conditions on the other. This makes the cultural-political commitment all the more important. For only when bureaucratic processes are simplified and accelerated, when racisms are first exposed and then dismantled, and when there is greater openness to different cultures and models of life, can groups like „La Fleur“ work transnationally in a sustainable way. Theater der Zeit, Elisabeth Luft
The sound for the new work of „La Fleur“ is provided by composer Timor Litzenberger. From his mixing desk he drives the performers with hard beats and heating rhythms. Big city vibes at the German premiere in Düsseldorf’s FFT, memories of hot club nights are awakened. „Make it look easy,“ someone shouts, in rhythm with the music they clap, challenge each other. Their joy and hearty laughter hint at the power and glow of the dance scenes in which they grew up. Theater der Zeit, Elisabeth Luft
