Shonen - Éric Minh Cuong Castaing

Associate Artist

From 2021 to 2024 ICK will collaborate intensively with Artist Associate Éric Minh Cuong Castaing and his company SHONEN. Castaing has been selected before by Emio Greco and Pieter C. Scholten to be associate artist at the Ballet National de Marseille from 2016 to 2018. 

The focus of his choreographic research is the ‘augmented body’: new technologies that interfere with our everyday lives to such an extent that they become an extension of our own body. 

Castaing attends and graduates college at the Gobelins l’école de l’image in Paris, where he studies visual arts. After his graduation, he spends several years working in animated film. Because of his interest in using technology and visual effects in different disciplines, Castaing becomes acquainted with hip-hop and contemporary dance, among other things. In 2007 he founds his own company, ‘Shonen’, and from this moment on he starts collaborating with other young creators of his generation.
