Urban distortions takes an interest in the clash of territories, speeds and movements of different scales through the exploration and the decoding of three cities: Hong Kong, Mtwapa (Kenya) and Brussels.
We are trying out a deciphering of the city, a system of urban reading and writing, with humour and certain strangeness brought about as a result of decontextualisation.
The singer/musician Matthieu Ha develops a language without words with witch he ends up with his Haute Contre voice in a musical style close to minimal and baroque music.

Between performance and installation, the two sides of this dance project, with their diverging issues, meet at the perceptive distortions level.
