(LA) HORDE

Since 2013, (LA)HORDE brings together the artists Marine Brutti, Jonathan Debrouwer and Arthur Harel. This collective of choreographers and visual artists, who took on the direction of the Ballet national de Marseille in 2019, has always developed a collaborative project with several online communities that has given rise to several multidisciplinary and cross-community creations.
Through films and performances (Novaciéries, 2015; The Master's Tools, 2017; Cultes, 2019), and choreographic pieces (To Da Bone, 2017; Marry Me in Bassiani, 2019; Room With A View, 2020), (LA)HORDE interrogates the political component of dance and maps diverse choreographic forms of popular uprising, transitioning from raves to traditional dances, as well as jumpstyle. Their exploration of the new dynamics of circulation and representation of dance and body that develop online led them to work on the concept of "post-internet dances". In 2021, with the Ballet national de Marseille they invited for a mixed program choreographers Lucinda Childs, Tania Carvalho, Lasseindra Ninja and Oona Doherty - each embodying their own iconic, inclusive and engaged conception of dance. By diversifying formats, (LA)HORDE questions the almost infinite serendipity that this new territory provides and proposes multiple perspectives on the uprisings of the communities with whom they work in a heterarchical way.
