Protopolis is a choreographic installation developed from a series of urban experiences entitled Protocols for an Invented City.



This work completes a cycle of research in which the urban landscape of Grenoble has been the site of action and the source of inspiration for the creation of this choreographic proposal.


Protopolis is a coined word that combines two Greek terms: proto (first, previous, ancestral) + polis (city), a utopian space that demands a return to the first form, to the notion of the previous and ancestral. In an immersive topography, shared time and space are a pretext for talking about territory and belonging.
