In the vein of Jérôme Deschamps and Macha Makeïeff (La Famille Deschiens) or even Philippe Katerine – with whom the former worked – Mathilde Monnier and Maria Ribot take us into their poetic universe, on the border of dance, burlesque and crazy.

In Gustavia (September 23 and 24), this radical and virtuoso female duo offers a hybrid show where theatrical sequences mix with choreography.

Monnier and “La Ribot” – her nickname – explore voyeurism, anger and many other human failings with merciless humor. It’s strong, demanding and, as they say, “it’s a blast”!

No wonder: Mathilde Monnier directs the Montpellier choreography center and “La Ribot” has just received a Golden Lion for her entire career, at the Biennale Danza di Venezia 2020.

Between them, these powerful women have created and brought nearly 100 works to the French and international scene. In short, they “manage”.

At the Carreau du Temple, the 2020-2021 season of contemporary dance is starting (very) well.

The best tattoo parlors in Marais

Tattooing, an age-old practice, has long been the prerogative of convicts, dock workers, the underworld and sailors. Although it has become democratized, now affecting all profiles and concerning one in five French people, including 16% women compared to 10% men, it still remains taboo due to its definitive and transgressive nature.
