Four characters sitting on four chairs enact a ritual based on leg- and hand-claps that is both rhythmic and choreographic.

The Magnificent 4 / Performance is a 7 minutes choreography and it's an excerpt of the performance "Siegfried Forever".

The Magnificent 4 / Performance can be combined with a 30 to 45 minutes Master Class where Mauro and his colleagues teach the movements to the audience in an energetic and playful atmosphere.

"The Magnificent 4" is a short movie by Stéphane Broc based on the Clapping choreography.
"The Magnificent 4 in Hong Kong" is a short movie by Stéphane Broc during our tour in Hong Kong.
The Magnificent 4 continue their journey around the world. After shooting their first short film in Brussels, they landed in Asia for the first time, in the post-global, pre-communist city of Hong Kong, with their suits and four chairs. Their encounter with the Asian world took place amid clapping, whether in the street, on water, in the woods, or on skyscrapers, and with optional mask.
