Compagnie Accrorap/Kader Attou

“Absorbing.” The New York Times

“Kader Attou (one of France’s best-known hip-hop dance artists)… [achieves] an impressive fusion of hip-hop’s pyrotechnics with contemporary dance elements.”The New York Times

French-born Algerian choreographer Kader Attou, with his company Accrorap, is one of the foremost representatives of French hip-hop dance. Since the exciting emergence of breakdance in the 1980s, Attou, director of Centre Chorégraphique National de La Rochelle, has sculpted an aesthetic that blends street moves, Indian kathak and contemporary dance. Now decades into a celebrated career, he makes his West Coast debut with an introspective look at his journey so far, set to a stirring mix of crackling classical and electronic records. Performed by 11 exceptional hip-hop dancers who have honed their unique styles over the years, The Roots is a transformative evening-length performance that represents the heart of hip hop.     www.artsandlectures.ucsb.edu
