WHO ARE WE ?
The Company Mot Ki Danse has just been born! It was created following the connection between two friends , Thais Daher from Brazil and Anna Maceda from Germany. Two Sisters of stage and dance, these two women discovered each other during their theater studies at the school of Jacques Lecoq in Barcelona.
Polyglot and multicultural, the Company Mot Ki Danse is inspired by different forms of scenic art, juggling with the language, beyond words, through the body, dance, singing, Butoh, drama and puppetry techniques, in order to propose an original theatrical language, eager to explore the boundaries of the collective imagination.

Anna performed with the company Masks on Stage from 2010-2014. This is where she became familiar with the mask, creation of mask, commedia dell'arte and puppet work. Before to live in Paris, she specialised from 2014-2016 in physical theatre in « Estudis de teatro » (International Theatre school of Lecoq, Barcelona). Anna has acted in various plays in classical theatre, visual arts and performances.

It seems important to us during this period of transition and awareness of gender equality, in the 21st century to create the show Lilith. We want to make a tribute to all women, no matter there ethnic group, religion, social class or age, etc.
This theatrical experience is the result of our research on the feminine universe in all its diversity.
Starting from the contemporary context and everyday situations through which many women can find their way. We broden the thematic field to let ourselves be carried away by the feminine imagination. The Projet Lilth offers a journey through time and the history of the stories from our childhood. We can find Mata Hari, bacchantes, witches rituals, and other ceremonies referring to the strength of our femininity.
It is a poetic trajectory, surreal, eventful, funny and emotional.
The form :
Through a fragmented dramaturgy, Thais and Anna mix genres: physical theater, contemporary dance, voice, rituals and audiovisual techniques. They play several characters, playing with words, poetry and body language.
After four months of research and long discussions in Parisian cafés, Anna and Thais have made one residence in the Pyrenees region of France to set up the first scenes of there show and a second one in September of this year, in Ocata, Spain with our director Marlene Jöbstl. The third residence is planned for the beginning of the next year to finish the show.

When she started to study, Anna Maceda was already a big fan of Albert Wendt's text. So there is no surprise that she chooses this as her first solo creation. To discover this award-winning German author of the 2009 grand prize of Austrian children's literature, and yet still never translated into French.
Princess Œuf de Caille takes us into her daily life, pushes her mechanical heart on the space of the stage, then the room becomes a space open to the game and the imagination. When she hears the tears of a small abandoned animal, she has no hesitation. Who has a heart of gold, can offer a meal, a shelter, to the most deprived. But daddy the king does not see that with a good eye. She will have to fight, while in her heart, the animal grows, grows, grows up, to take up too much space.
The form :
This poetic tale written by German Albert Wendt and translated into Alexandrine by Julien Usseglio pushes for personal development, listening and assertiveness. Over the scenes, Princess Oeuf de Caille has fun, imagination, revolt, love and development.
Funny, endearing, round and delicate, Princesse Œuf de Caille looks for her voice between that of wild nature and the world of adults. Going from laughter to tears, she leads the audience in a whirlwind of emotions, in a musical and whimsical waltz, from which one emerges with a smile, grown up and ready to face the world.
A poetic spectacle: The language, modern and poetic, resonates with a clever mix of free and rhymed verses, in a simple vocabulary accessible to all.
A musical show: Different original melodies accompany the text, in order to compose a true musical universe.
A puppet show: Authentic, the puppets bring a particular aesthetic while returning the spectator to his own childhood games.
Creation Process :
In the beginning of 2018 Anna Maceda and Julien Usseglio translated the play from German into French. Actually Anna and Ewa Maria Wolska are currently working on the conception of the play, costumes, puppets and the diffusion and Marta Mattotti on the music creation.

Allocation of funds
What will the collection be used for?
The colection will be used to set up our company and create our shows.This is a very important commitment to us. Our goal is of course to become financially independent.
To achieve this, for over a year we have been working on the implementation of these artistic projects. We have had to invest a lot of the funding already from our own pockets : rehearsals, artistic residence, translation and administration.
With your support we will be able to gather a financial base necessary for the creation of our company and our projects:
For the creation of shows:
- Costumes: 750 € (400 € - Lilith 350 € - Princesse œuf de caille)
- Cost of making puppets : 530 € (Princesse œuf de caille)
- Additional Accessories : 170 € (Lilith)
- Accommodation / travel expenses during residences / Room for rehearsal : 400 €
- Posters and publicity: 300 € (150 € - Lilith / 150 € - Princesse œuf de caille)
The 2.000 euros that we ask for is a minimum financial basis and necessary for the implementation of our projects. If we manage to exceed this sum, the money will continue to serve our company and our artistic creations, many costs not included in this donation we ask from you.
Therefor if we reach 2.500 euros, we can directly pay our team
If we reach 3.000 euros, we can buy a video projector.
Beyond this sum, the money raised can be used to further other projects thay we want to achieve.
Since the Company Mot Ki Danse has just been created, we do not have a bank account for the moment. Meanwhile, all the money collected will be managed by Thaïs Daher.
