Radhouane El Meddeb


compagnie de Soi

Radhouane El Meddeb spotted the young performers in this piece on the square in front of the CENTQUATRE-Paris. For quite some time the choreographer watched these dancers, breakers, voguers and hip-hop dancers, the instinct for living shown in their lively movements, their heightened desires. He was trying to understand what was being played out on this tarmac stage that was so alien to his poetic universe, watching the dancers throw themselves into this improvised circle, fragile, sometimes lost, in search of the other. Making use of the details of the vitality that shifted his vision of dance, he decided to transform his observations into a wild show featuring nine of these dancers.
