Compagnie Accrorap artistic director, dancer, and choreographer, Kader Attou, is a native of Lyon and a leading representative of the French hip-hop dance movement. Emphasizing humanistic engagement and cultural blending, Compagnie Accrorap embodies a unique alchemy of hip hop, circus, and contemporary dance. This alchemy is the basis for the thrilling, evening- length work, The Roots.
“Kader Attou is one of the rare people to render palpable on stage, partly through his choice of music rap beats, oriental melodies and French songs: a positive image of a multi-coloured, popular culture for France, with no discrimination.”
