Nadia Beugré (France | Montpellier & Abidjan)


“We are already born”. Those are the impactful words of the cast of Prophétique, members of the trans and non-binary community. This collective work directed by Nadia Beugré and created in Abidjan in the Ivory Coast questions gender indentity and displays a unique societal reality not often seen in traditional media. Halfway between movement exploration, theatre, unleashed dance and LGBTQIA+ activism, the cast shares their stories and adjust their performance to the audience’s reactions. Hairdressers by day, they set the dancefloor on fire during the night, living their full truth in a society that wishes to erase them, the ones they call “the crazies”.

Loud noises & explicit content


We were shaken to the core by our artistic meeting with Nadia Beugré, unique choreographer and director of her generation. Prophétique is a powerful creation, moving and funny. It is almost like a big party where the cast’s happiness is contagious and body positivity shatters the traditional boundaries, introducing us to a daring and uncommon universe.
