Kadia Faraux, the company’s artistic director, got into hip hop in 1994 as a choreographer and performer. She cultivates and affirms her desire to compose pieces inspired by this rough-edged aesthetic, so it becomes audible to others. To her, dance has become a woman’s voice. Her determination has enabled her to create several pieces of hip hop, which is dominated by male performers, through a focus on expressing femininity and sensuality. In parallel to these creations, she has since 2004 led hip hop workshops for specific groups (prisoners; children, teens and adults; the Biennale de la danse; professional dancers, etc.).
