TRIPLE BILL #1 : French-Japanese collaboration project on hip-hop dance

Enjoy the latest hip-hop dance created jointly by popular Japanese and French artists!

The project is the brainchild of Dominique Hervieu, director of Dance Dance Dance @ YOKOHAMA 2018. Kader Attou, widely acclaimed for his highly artistic hip-hop dance pieces, and Jann Gallois, a young emergent choreographer, will select five Japanese dancers through an audition to create new pieces together. TOKYO GEGEGAY led by MIKEY will join them for the group’s first performance in Paris. The collaboration of three different styles and approaches will completely reshape the image of hip-hop. The program will be created and performed in Yokohama, then travel to Théâtre national de Chaillot, BienBiennale de danse de Lyonnale de la danse de Lyon and other venues in France.
