The Roots – Transmission

Far from being just an artistic style, hip hop is also a cross-genre movement. Famed choreographer Kader Attou was the first choreographer with a background in hip hop that was appointed director of Centre Chorégraphique National de La Rochelle. His work Roots vividly brings to life the artist’s long personal history with hip hop – a history comprised of childhood memories, dance experimentations and cultural exchanges. In the Greek version of the performance, set to premiere at the Athens Festival, Attou will work with Greek professional street dancers, giving us the opportunity to come in contact with this fascinating scene. The performance was first presented in France by Attou’s Accrorap dance company and was enthusiastically received by the Kalamata International Dance Festival audience in 2019.
