New figure of the hip hop scene, the choreographer Ousmane Sy takes on the dancers of his group Paradoxsal in a rhythmic rhythmic journey where the singular feeds the collective.

Abstract

One foot in the club, the other in the battle: it was in the gaps between these expressive spaces that Ousmane Sy assumed his affiliation to house, even becoming one of its leading ambassadors in France. He championed the “French touch” of this urban dance, transposing an androgynous gestural grammar to the summit of the international scene. With Queen Blood, he wanted to continue this work around the female body with the dancers of the Paradox-Sal group, whom he had been training in house music for years. In this piece, the performers articulate their respective femininity in motion. The choreographer, a FAIR-E collective member who was recently appointed co-head of the National Choreography Centre (CCN) of Rennes and Brittany, takes us on a rhythmic excursion where the singular fosters the collective.
