Based in St Vallier sur Rhône in Drôme (26), the KHAM company was created in 2011 at the initiative of the Lao-french choreographer Olé Khamchanla.
KHAM symbolically refers to the first solo of the choreographer, "Kham ...", which he created in Thailand, Laos and France in 2007. This piece is the beginning of an original exploration that makes him discover the traditional dances of his native region, and since then, have been constantly feeding his work and the activities of the company.
The artistic work of the company develops through contemporary choreographic creations mixing hip-hop and traditional South-East Asian dance, and does not hesitate to experiment the crossings with other forms of expression like the theater , singing, painting or video.
Raw materials and a rich vocabulary, specific and universal, that allow to question the human being, its origins, its interactions with the other and its own questions.
The Company is suported by : DRAC and Région Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes, and Departement de la Drôme
