PRIVACY POLICY

K3MK Company is a cultural entity that puts at the center of its creative process the transdisciplinarity of the arts in order to propose to the public a new vision of the world and the issues that animate it.

Considering culture as a vector of social link, K3MK Company invites to the meeting and the discovery of the other, thus advocating the diversity and the cultural richness. Each work is a questioning, a space of sharing and co-construction putting the Spect-Actor at the heart of the artistic approach, thus favoring their instantaneous appropriation.

By initiating the bringing together of talents in the form of an artistic incubator, K3MK Company favors the emergence of innovative concepts free from disciplinary categorization.

Beyond the scenic works proposed by the Karry Kamal Karry Company, the artists are invited to enrich the repertoire of K3MK Company by participating in the elaboration of new concepts within the Art Performance Ensemble. They can also propose their own creation by responding to the calls for tenders of the Commende and New Productions division.

K3MK Company is particularly interested in the possibilities of real-time motion capture for live performance and digital production from a performing arts perspective.

Anticipating an unpredictable future, the company has decided to invest in the territories of digital art for dance, theater and performance. Confronted with the accessibility of the virtual reality audience, the company aims at accessible formats such as 2D projection for video mapping, cinema or online broadcasting. For example, ImproSessions by Ensemble Art Performance is an interactive, immersive, but also digital performance in real time.

The stakes of contemporaneity in the artistic creation of the XXIst century.

The notion of “contemporaneity” is frequently used to evoke today’s performing arts, and more specifically dance, theater, opera, music and digital art. But the relationship to modernity, to the avant-garde, to progress in art, as well as the relationship to tradition and social context, are constantly re-evaluated by the artists. The project of K3MK Company is to produce and disseminate international artistic creation focused on projects that cross disciplines – dance, theater, music, video, digital, etc. – and in line with the multidisciplinary approach of the group’s projects.

Cie Karry Kamal Karry

Cie Karry Kamal Karry


Founded in 2001, the Karry Kamal Karry Company produces and disseminates the transdisciplinary stage works – dance, theater, opera, performance and music creation – of artist and researcher Karry Kamal Karry.

Today, through the elaboration of accessible and innovative creations, the Company imagines projects which are articulated around the principle of sharing and exchange encouraging the meeting between live art and Spect-Actor. Thus, the spaces and the artistic imagination of the Company are renewed allowing the (re)discovery of a universe thought for the public.

For the year 2023, many projects are being created and will be announced very soon.

Ensemble Art Performance

Ensemble Art Performance

For more than fifteen years, Karry Kamal Karry has been developing performative installations for museums, galleries, heritage sites, parks and gardens, businesses and unusual places.

These installation-performances place the body as a plastic work to be visited. In a continuous cycle of two to four hours, visitors are invited to experience the plastic and sensory relationships they have with dancers, actors, singers and musicians at work.

The Impro-Sessions of the Ensemble Art Performance is part of this dynamic of exchange and work allowing young talents to develop their artistic potential.

K3MK Company offers the possibility to artists to evolve in an experimental framework where artistic actions oscillating between danced exhibitions, interactive installations, structured improvisations, specific interventions in the public space and in the urban space are led. Here, the Spect-Actor is placed at the heart of the performance process.

Today, the Ensemble Art Performance initiates a new series of Impro-Sessions focused on electronic music. About twenty artists, all coming from different backgrounds – dancers, actors, singers, musicians, DJs, video artists, directors, painters, illustrators, designers, graphic artists, stylists – are part of this ensemble.

K3+ & Co

K3+ & Co I Commissions and new productions

In parallel to the original creations of Karry Kamal Karry and the projects of the Art Performance Ensemble, K3MK Company sets up a system of commissions to young artists – national and international – in residence.

Encouraging artistic creation, these commissions also enrich the cultural repertoire of the Company and allow K3+&Co to propose each year, a rich and varied programming through works realized within the framework of punctual events, performances and reflection projects.

These commissions will be announced very soon via calls for projects.

Lab Media Project

Lab Media Project

Aware that one is both receiver and actor, specialist and novice, formed of a thousand different identities, and pushing to this awareness, mediation is at the heart of K3MK Company’s creation process. This will wants to lead to the emergence of a public that is no longer a receiver but an actor.

Indeed, the actors of this project recognize in the research and production of knowledge and artistic expressions, the mode of operation of the most innovative part of our society, but do not forget that culture is a common production. With the will to explore further the modes of artistic production and to diffuse them in the society, they want to register their project of independent form in front of the cultural economic world as in front of the cultural policies, in order to contribute to the creation of a new public space, that of the public.
