OpenDor is an emerging contemporary dance company founded by its artistic director & choreographer Adrien Ouaki.
The company aims to create powerful and evocative works that merge contemporary dance and physical theater combined with a strong aesthetic of staging.
By bringing together a diverse range of artists and perspectives, our mission is to create pieces that are emotionally resonant and deeply aligned with the vision of OpenDor.
Challenge and engage the audience to make them part of the movement. In a modern and unique way.
Collaborate. Research. Create.
A Cloud Story - Thêatre National de Chaillot - ODCV4
OpenDor held its first performance at the Théâtre National de Chaillot during the ODCV4 event. The company presented an excerpt from the ongoing creation A Cloud Story. A big thank you to Mehdi Kerkouche and EmkaDance Project for the invitation.
A Cloud Story - Creation (Work in progress)
In front of the unknown, our choices are the movements in the present that shape the imprint of our future.
"A Cloud Story" is a choreographic creation for two performers. An intimate duet that explores the space between all things during a specific event.
Director and choreographer: Adrien Ouaki
Performers: Julie Vivès & Valentin Durand
During a week in the studio, Adrien Ouaki and a group of very talented dancers at the CCN de Creteil conducted research on a very specific theme for a future project. One of the main objective of their research was to bridge the gap between physical theater and dance to find a common ground between the two art forms.
This workshop was the first event for the company and provided a perfect environment for meeting new performers and understanding the artistic approach of OpenDor Company.
