ABOUT THE COMPANY
The Company of Humanophones was created by Rémi Leclerc in 2013 with the propose to facilitate human and artistic encounters around the music and body expression. An imperious desire to return to the essentials : the body, the voice.
The Humanophones refers to themselves as “anatomical concert performers”. There’s a transversality of disciplines in their work. Always navigating between dance, physical theater and their bodies used as music instruments.
Today, through their original music, they invite and challenge their audience to appreciate the possibilities of the human body and consider its strength and sensitivity. Whilst they explore the different levels of the social interaction, bringing out situations in a poetic way through humorous characters.
Rémi Leclerc brought together five artists to create CORPUS.
He founded Humanophones company to produce this first show “Corpus” in 2014 which has been played more than 300 times internationally. They released their first album in 2017 under the label “Socadisc” which won the prize SACEM from self-production in 2016.
“CORPUS” brings firstly together five artists with a strong expressiveness and of a remarkable complicity, (Leila Martial, Bastien Picot, Wab, Simon Filippi.) giving a space for the public to question the distance that contemporary man creates with his own body.
This first show has brought to the company the recognition from famous body music artists around the globe (Keith Terry, founder of the International Body Music Festival, Fernando Barba of Barbatuques, Tupac Mantilla…).
2019 is the year when their show I WANT YOU BACH comes out, as a special piece for the Festival Passe ton Bach d’abord, through which they explore the body music possibilities around the universe of Bach’s music.
