V-wings in Guadeloupe

Over the last 3 years we’ve been traveling around the globe with a multidisciplinary project of itinerant artistic residencies.

This project is co-funded by the Europion Union under the culture program. It aims to encourage the emerging artist’s professionalization and the recognition of emerging cultures from priority neighborhoods.

This major project includes six artistic residencies (France, Guadeloupe, Belgium, Finland, The Netherlands and the United Kingdom).

Headed by two choreographers ( Eric Mezino and Gaëtan Levêque), this project gathers twelve young European artists.

After creating an artistic form mixing circus arts, hiphop dance and emerging cultures, they move to six residencies (Metropolitan France, Guadeloupe, Belgium, Finland, Netherlands, United Kingdom) where they share their work with local emerging artists and young amateurs coming from priority neighborhoods. At the end of each « residency step », the enriched creation will be presented during local cultural events.

PURPOSES

• Support young artists in their cultural, social and economic inclusion
• Provide them a training on the social circus knowledge
• Encourage the opening up to Europe and put intercultural and artistic exchanges in favour of the social inclusion in Europe
• Promote urban cultures recognition
• Improve « the live together » and the solidarity, through the participatory, intercultural and educational dimension of emerging cultural activities
• Encourage cultural and artistic activities democratization to the publics far from the culture field.

In the beginning of November we have the honor to work at one of the most beautiful places we’ve been so far, to share our love and passion with beautiful people on the Caribbean island Guadeloupe.
