Expect fearless physicality, inventive and affecting choreography and distinctive and stirring music.

Shapers is the result of a remarkable international collaboration between eight dancers from Egypt, France, Spain and Morocco, questioning their relationship to the city, to the locations, to passers-by and to the public space.

For 20 years Ex Nihilo has been one of the most exciting outdoor dance companies in Europe. Co-directed by Anne Le Batard and Jean-Antoine Bigot, Ex Nihilo’s choreography is the result of an immersion in place: a journey where bodies explore the very fabric of the city.

Ex Nihilo will also be running an intensive workshop for professional dancers - please click here for more details.

The Shapers project is co-funded by the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union 2016 - 2018.
