Allant vert a l´Envers (AVAE), AKA Going green upside down – is a creative project about the synergy and proximity of humans and nature, about the humans as nature.
In this project, we invite you to join us in a 7-day-laboratory, to explore the natural instincts, the complicity and the rapprochement of the city dwellers with the urban greenery in Amman.
If you are interested in dance, music and visual arts, we would love to see you in the lab. Everyday for 3 hours we experiment with movements, sound, scenography and land-art installations together, and see what we could create together!

Born from the meeting of two artists, Ladji Kone and Soly Volná, the dancer and the designer, the choreographer and the architect, the gardener and the photographer, the musician and the visual artist, Ciel K, a multidisciplinary company, cultivates actions and creations rooted in dance and visual art in encounter with other artistic and scientific languages.
This open approach and the emphasis on complicity maintain dynamism, perpetual questioning without prejudice and sets vibes for further collaborations with movement artists in Burkina Faso and abroad.
Dancer, choreographer, thinker and land-artist, Ladji began dancing as an autodidact in his neighborhood of Ouagadougou in Burkina Faso. In 2003, the discovery of hip-hop culture channelled his exuberant energy and breakdance became his research laboratory of the possible.
His open approach and emphasis on complicity maintain dynamism and perpetual questioning without prejudice and leads Ladji to bring people together within the JUMP collective and to work with artists and thinkers from various contexts. He merged his universe with the visual artist Soly Volná to develop actions rooted in dance and design in encounter with other artistic and scientific disciplines.
Soly, visual artist, performer and architect of Czech origin, based in Burkina since 2012, when she joined Jakub Cigler Architekti (JCA) team. Searching for environmental and social balance she co-initiated the unlimitedJCA to carry out experimental and pro-bono activities for the benefit of cultural actors in Ethiopia and Burkina Faso.
Since 2016, she has merged her universe with the choreographer Ladji Kone to create the multidisciplinary company Ciel K. This, thinking about sustainable or regenerative approaches and her academic research on aesthetics bring her to discover new dimensions of creation with artists involved on stage or in production studios.
