Les rois de la piste

A night club. A parade of characters – atypical, astonishing bodies exulting in their solitude. Very musical, theatrical and burlesque, this piece focuses on those who love the night, its discos and dance clubs.

By means of investigation, entertainment, caricature and cross-dressing, Thomas Lebrun and his trenchant team of performers take a scathing yet tender look at the stars of the dance floor!

A dancer for the choreographers Bernard Glandier, Daniel Larrieu, Christine Bastin, Christine Jouve and Pascal Montrouge, Thomas Lebrun went on to establish his company Illico in 2000. Based in Nord-Pas de Calais, he was an associate artist with Danse à Lille / CDC from 2005 to 2011. In his work he explores diverse worlds and aesthetics, shifting from very demanding dance to emphatic theatricality. Thomas Lebrun has worked on numerous collaborative projects in France and elsewhere (China, Brazil, Lithuania, South Korea, Russia) and gives pride of place to teaching and passing on his dance knowledge to others. Since January 2012 he has been the director of the Centre chorégraphique national in Tours, France.
