description

Urbanthropus is an ancestral and futuristic creature. This living being, belonging to neither sex and yet possessing a certain erotic power, appears as in a dream, provokes with his innocence, troubles by his strangeness the daily goings-on of the audience before disappearing who knows where.

This performance is a synthesis of a precisely choreographed structure and an improvisation inspired by the particularities of the site and unforeseen events.

Urbanthropus recreates itself on each site. Each performance is unique.

 

"urbanthropus is pure art...subtly erotic ... Da Motus! transform their bodies offensively into a work of art." (T.Hahn, Trottoir, Heft 36, Sep./Okt 2002)

"With their profoundly tactile bodies, the delicate beings have the vigilant lemur's attitude, the crawling sense of the serpent, the impertinent curiosity and the gift for giving new meanings to our urban spaces." (L‘Express 03.08.1994)
