Cie THOR | Thierry Smits


"Toumaï" means "Hope for life" in the Gorane language spoken in the central Sahara in reference to newborns during the season when survival is the most difficult. Thierry Smits’s new creation draws its inspiration from the darkest things humanity can have. Humor, tragedy and poetry are mixed to construct contrasting visions outlining a humanity to come in a situation of post bio-climatic collapse.

Cie THOR | Thierry Smits

Since the setting-up of his company in 1990, Thierry Smits has created over thirty dance performances. Among them Eros délétère (1991), Red Rubber Balls (1999), D'ORIENT (2005), V.-Nightmares (2007) and To the Ones I Love (2010). His creations oscillate between sober contemporary lines on the one hand, and pop, queer and often provocative aesthetics on the other hand. Thor‘s performances constantly bear witness of a high technical rigour and gestural inventiveness, of an undisputable frankness and generosity.
