“A French-Senegalese choreographer concerned with the search for otherness, Abdou N’Gom uses and deconstructs the conventions of hip hop to underpin his humanist message. He is a dancer of virile and meaningful corporeality, equally at home in the street and in proscenium theatres!” (Francis de Coninck)

The roots of Compagnie Stylistik are in hip hop dance, which Abdou N’Gom used to explore the senses, also drawing inspiration from other kinds of gestural language such as martial arts, which he has practised, plus contact improvisation and certain carrying techniques. The company’s choreographic work investigates identity, cultural blending and otherness through personal contemporary composition, imbued with theatricality and enriched by the “physicality” that Abdou N’gom has acquired through his sporting activities.
