Urban Dance / Right in the Hood 2015

Through cross portraits of young dancers and two cities – New York and Paris – this documentary questions what urban dance is today: the places, the actors, the common points and the differences.

By exploring two cities, one the birthplace of the movement, the other crossroads of the new trends, we will discover how street dance has evolved to become a real tool of expression of the difference and of one’s self-worth not forgetting the revolt it imposes sometimes, facing the authorities.It reflects vividly the speed in which the city, which is its laboratory, builds and spreads. It has therefore become one of the fastest growing practices, but also a symbol, an advantage, an opportunity to succeed in life without giving up the protest.Urban Dance, has it become a tool of expression to overcome social boundaries and of the genre? Can it forge an individual or collective identity? Can it have an impact on the social life of the dancer?

KADER ATTOU – The Roots – Stage on screen 2013

For this new 2013 opus, Kader Attou delves into his past and searches his body memory alongside eleven dancers, to the rhythm of visceral beats, classical compositions, accordion and Algerian tunes.

In The Roots, the choreographer and director of the Centre Choréographique de La Rochelle, Kader Attou, looks into the history of hip-hop dance and draws from it a show that is as powerful as it is sensitive. After twenty years in the Accrorap Company, enriched by various cultures as different as those of India and Brazil, Kader Attou wanted to return to his primary sensations. The Roots is first and foremost a human adventure, a journey. Eleven talented hip-hop dancers are at the heart of the show: they create a group in complete symbiosis, at ease with group dance as they are with solos. They are tied to each other by a soundtrack with highly evocative power. Brahms, Beethoven as well as electro music open doors to this dancing humanity. Staging soaring and dancing bodies, poetics of the movement, Kader Attou keeps on exploring a dance always turned to meaning and emotion. A humanistic vision of dance.

The Rodin Project / Russell Maliphant – Stage on screen 2012

A ballet created by Maliphant, one of the leaders of the English choreographic wave, and inspired by the sculptures of Auguste Rodin. The story of the encounter between a genius of shapes and forms and a master of the movement.

Le Projet Rodin is more than a tribute. Russell Maliphant explains: “I want to use Rodin’s watercolors and sculptures as a starting point, dividing the performance into two sections: the drawings and the sculpture . But without literally “doing as Rodin” on a stage. It is the energy of his shapes, twists that inspire me. I think there is a sense of movement in the sculptor’s strength that can be captured. And instead of a two-dimensional work, dance can give it a third one “.

The movements of the musicians accompany the dancers’; their presence, their physical intensity as well as their instruments respond to those of the performers.
