Since sept. the 1st, the Anooki are shaking the news on Franceinfo

A shot of animation to drink every day on.

The Anooki, happy climate refugees, invade TV screens, to talk about hot news topics and shake our views of the world.
They’ve just turned up, straight off their pure and disconnected ice field, to find themselves confronted with our hot news topics, played on a loop on our Tvs, radios and notifications on our smartphones.
Being fresh off their ice field, they don’t have our codes and references. They look at the state of the world with their innocent eyes. They make fun of topics that are sometimes serious and tragic. They imitate us clumsily to reveal the absurdity of our world, deluged with information, with fashionable trends, of our over use of digital tools and other ephemerous topics…

The Anooki remain neutral, they’re not lesson givers.
They just bring their amusing vision of the world which is not always fun.

Les Anooki light up the House of Ukraine, in Kyiv

Les Anooki illuminent Kiev

The Anooki continue their world tour with sound and light shows!
After Lyon, Dubai, Sharjah, Osaka and Singapore, The Anooki are the guests of Kyiv. They will open the “French Spring”, a month of cultural events organized by the French Institute in Ukraine.
To launch this event, the Anooki will happily wave the House of Ukraine, a massive building, worthy representative of Stalinist architecture, Place de l’Europe, 2 steps from Maidan Square which was the scene of the recent revolution in Ukraine.
This new will be musical, with a surprise: the Dakh Daughters, 6 Ukrainian singers, will make a live performance during the show, mixing their voices with Klimperei’s music and Anooki’s choreography.
Between 25000 and 30000 spectators are expected Saturday, April 2 at 20:30 and 21:30, to attend the show on the facade of the House of Ukraine, Kyiv.


The Anooki in Singapore

At the end of August 2015, the Anooki invaded the facade of the National Museum. The huge facade turned into a new playground during the 10 days of the Singapore Night Festival. A furious dance and 50 blown candles to celebrate 50 years of independence of the country.


The Anooki speak Inuktitut

The story begins with a message from Thomassie, teacher in Ivujivik‘s school, the most northern town in Canada. He suggests us to use the Anooki as a class support with his students.
After some translation exchanges, here is the result: the Anooki in Inuktitut, one of the 4 Inuit dialects, a syllabic language, made of strange signs.
We hope the Anooki will entertain students in the Far North.
We warmly thank Thomassie Magiok and Charlie Kowcharlie for their approach.
