Creatura is our first ciné-danse project. It depicts the birth and evolution of a creature interpreted by 8 street dancers. By using animation concepts specific to Popping (waving, robot), the performers give life to a creature learning to tame its environment.

Shot in April 2022, the short film is currently in post-production.
