22nd Cyprus Contemporary Dance Festival - France

22nd Cyprus Contemporary Dance Festival - France


Since its birth in the Mississippi’s Delta, at the same period with modern dance, jazz music has always been a space of creativity and mixing. Since then, these two arts rarely come across despite having a lot in common, from improvisation to freedom that constitute their essence. 

Brahim Bouchelaghem created Tracks for dansewindows (dance for everyone and everywhere) and approaches jazz music by creating this piece. With Brahim Bouchelaghem, hip hop is confronted with jazz music and contemporary dance in the thick of the Roaring Twenties. The piece is a breath-taking mix, which brings together a former jazzman, an ambitious singer, a lost musician and a brigand. With their own dreams, hope and faith, they are going to try to tame each other… Funny, unpredictable or serious attempts create an energetic rhythm that will enchant the audience.
