DANCE PERFORMANCE WITH HURLANT CORPS (Martinique)
Rate: 15GHC / 7 GHC for AF students and cultural members
In a choreographer’s mind, the world of emotions is defined by body lan¬guage. It is important to observe different styles of hip-hop, each with its energy to complement and help promote the message to get across. This dance analyzes the behavior of man who likes to appear strong despite inner suffering that eats away his very soul. In permanent imbalance, the two Caribbean performers use an inner strength to guide dance in front of a system that does not fail and sometimes seems intransigent.
//// WED 19TH NOV to FRI 21ST NOV ///
