The journey of dancer and choreographer Marion Motin is out of the ordinary. Passionate about hip-hop, this self-taught woman from Normandy has become an artist coveted by the greatest international pop stars. Madonna, Robbie Williams, Stromae, Christine & The Queens: she choreographs their performances, their videos to the point that we all know her without even realizing it. Before becoming a name, Marion was a unique choreographic signature.
From street battles, through the glitter of US shows, to the dance academies which now solicit her: Marion is always in the right place. A place she has conquered through her talent, charisma and values drawn from the family clan and the wild land where she grew up and where she still lives.
After having created a lot for others, at just 40 years old and a young mother, she faces a new challenge. A more personal creation, which she signs in her name: LE GRAND SOT. In the countdown to the premiere of this show, through her intense daily life where she juggles between a thousand projects (Angèle's and Catherine Ringer's tour, Jean-Paul Gauthier's Fashion Freak Show residency in Madrid,...) and a thousand destinations, we try to unravel the mystery of this powerful woman.
Where does she draw her inspiration, her influences, her energy? How did she impose herself without compromising? In what way is dance for Marion a language that allows her to address these universal questions of sorority, diversity, gender and femininity? Friends, family, collaborators, troupe... all those who rub shoulders with her say that she has the energy of ten people, that she is a combination of power and gentleness: it is her nearly animalistic attitude that has brought her the nickname LOUVE (wolf).
