On stage, the dancers write their screenplay, combining the energy of break-dance with the poetry of Brahim Bouchelaghem
Nine top-notch hip hop dancers animate life stories under hypnotic scrolling light. Dance floor grows and shrinks wherein the BBoys and BGirls explode into cinematic montages of powerful solos and combative groups. The renowned Roubaix-based choreographer Brahim Bouchelaghem magically blends street dance spirit with contemporary sensibility in Motion, allowing time, movement and meaning unfold themselves in the most dynamic, contemplative sense. An electrifying hip hop dance manifesto where journeys of life and poetic aspirations collide.
Founded in 2007, Compagnie Zahrbat is one of the most exciting dance companies that endeavours to challenge the boundaries between hip hop and contemporary dance, under the direction of Brahim Bouchelaghem. Compagnie Zahrbat has toured extensively in France, Russia, Urkaine, Algeria and Mainland China with their multinational creations.
