Kontamine is a contemporary dance company, and was founded in september 2014 at Montpellier. The troupe works on gestural art by bringing it into the larger field of the theatrical stage.
Productions are inspired by social issues. Our contemporary world is a great open source for creativity due to gaps, more extreme and stronger, and to multiculturalism, meetings from all backgrounds and international melting pot.
By performing, we intend to put forward our art, to share and create a connection with the audience, to contaminate you by the dance virus.
