Appointed director of the Centre Chorégraphique National du Havre Normandie, Fouad Boussouf has created almost twenty shows since 2010 on the borderline between hip-hop, contemporary dance and circus. Today he presents his latest creation, Fêu, at the Théâtre du Rond-Point, taking us a wild ride full of choreography based on the theme of fire.
In Fouad Boussouf’s dance creation, Fêu, every movement is charged with power and intensity, much like fire itself. Together, the dancers create a sensation of constant falling and rebirth through maintaining to place their feet simultaneously on the ground. This physical and fiery dance exudes a sensation of fatigue but, nevertheless, ignites genuine bursts of freedom.
Fouad Boussouf, famous for the success of his choreographic creation Nass featuring seven men in a bewitching acrobatic dance, now reveals its female counterpart in his new dance show Fêu. By skilfully mixing styles, he creates a dialogue between the bodies of these dancers in an expressive and distinct choreography.
With a captivating collective energy, eleven female dancers take the stage of the Théâtre du Rond-Point to interpret a spellbinding and unrestrained dance around the all-consuming essence of fire. The true power and beauty of human gestures.
