De(s)génération

Duration 60'

At the core of hip hop lies the motto: “Peace, Unity, Love and Having Fun”. Many great things in store for this artistic movement which has been growing in France for more than thirty years and has brought about several generations of dancers! Born in the street yesterday, addicted to Youtube today, these generations are assembled on stage by choreographer Amala Dianor through a high-level casting call. How have this philosophy, these dancing techniques, these memories, travelled from one generation to the next? Between the “grown-ups” and the young shoots, Amala Dianor made a point of preserving this defiant, confrontational culture, this taste for performance and for the pleasure of dancing. All the while implicitly promoting positive ideas like kindness to one another, transmission and solidarity, no matter one’s age or origins. A show conceived like a utopian remedy to the perspectives that are enforced upon us!
