"It's not reason that gives us moral direction, but sensitivity."

Maurice Barres

 

The MF company is a French contemporary dance and physical theatre company directed by Maxime Freixas and Francesco Colaleo. The authors' need is to translate into movement themes with which everyone can identify. Interested in seeking a personal language and poetics, the young choreographers want to create a channel of expression without social or cultural barriers, accessible to all, able to move the other with sensitivity. Starting from contemporary dance and its possible declinations (contact, theatre, floor work, improvisation etc...), the artistic objective becomes the passionate search for a physical and energetic gestural truth, contaminated by the communicative power of all applied arts, with a particular attention to cinema, painting and plasticity of sculpture.
