Benjamin Kahn

Bless the sound that Saved a Witch like me

“Bless the Sound that Saved a Witch like me” is the second in a series of portraits initiated by Benjamin Kahn in 2019. The piece is a choreographic proposal where physicality and incarnation remain central. Immersed in a vibrant soundscape, the performer, Sati Veyrunes, makes the audience travel through the exploration of a multitude of screams from the intimate to the collective, giving to the subject of Benjamin Kahn its strength, its political impact and its sense of urgency.


Benjamin Kahn is a dancer and choreographer. He studied dramaturgy and theatre at the University of Aix-en-Provence and the Conservatoire de Rennes and graduated from ESAC (École Supérieure des Arts du Cirque) in Belgium. After his studies, he collaborated with choreographers such as Philippe Saire, Benjamin Vandewalles, Nicole Beutler, Ben Riepe, Frédéric Flamand, Maud Le Pladec, Egle Budvytyte and Alessandro Sciaronni. He considers dance and choreography as powerful political tools and is particularly interested in the construction and deconstruction of how we view individual and collective bodies.
