Bouside Aït Atmane found fulfilment performing his own work, then as a performer for other artists and as a choreographer. He drew inspiration from the direct language of confrontation and transcribed it on stage, thus bridging the divide between battles and stage dancing. He created Dans l'arène (2015) with Yanka Pédron, and then his first solo, R1R2 START. In Manège (2020) he performed alongside five other dancers.
