An artistic, educational, solidarity and international cooperation project initiated and led by the Compagnie Marie Lenfant in Le Mans, France.
Alexandre Iseli will take part in M.E.R.C.I., a meeting of dance and music, two disciplines that have the ability to bring us together. 16 artists, from Le Mans, France, Morocco, Ireland, Greece and the United States, are invited for ten days to create and share their work, to interact and support each other, so that new works and ideas emerge. M.E.R.C.I. is a project of living together, of Art that connects.
M.E.R.C.I. is movement, with and towards others, to put Art back at the heart of daily life, thinking of the city as an open theatre, as close as possible to the inhabitants, all generations included.
Jack Ralite used to say: "The neighbour is the one who makes us bigger..." So let's happily increase our numbers.
