place of creation

Scène nationale de l'Agora

At a time when popular protests are rumbling, when movements of indignation spread worldwide, the Company WANTED POSSE wanted to express «its» revolution, the one that has guided its members from the beginning and allowed them to reveal their originality and differences. With «Revolution», the dancers cross an aesthetic line that offers to the glance a more sensitive and more theatralized writing, without departing from a hip hop that combines movement, technique and self-transcendence. In pursuit of their quest for freedom, their willingness to advance the hip hop genre in particular and artistic language in general, they write their story in the reflection of ours, imbuing it withmoments of hope, fury and thirst for the future.
