Yātrā

At the peak of his flamenco career, Andrés Marín set off on a pilgrimage to the mythical sources of his art — Yātrā means journey in Sanskrit — daring to perform a perfectly mastered pas de deux with the dancers from Kader Attou’s company. The two choreographers met to immerse themselves in each other’s aesthetics and take a contemporary look at their own dance in order to better rediscover its intensity and essential nature. This dialogue between the solar and pure hip-hop of Kader Attou and the iconoclastic flamenco of Andrés Marín is carried along by the breath of the musical and vocal jousts of the Ensemble Divana, a magnificent formation of traditional musicians from Rajasthan. A rare adventure – a commission by the Philharmonie de Paris — where contrasts unite to form a show in which each person retains their vital forces, while opening out to the other.

Marin, Andrés

Fils du danseur Andrés Marín et de la chanteuse Isabel Vargas, il commence à danser dès son plus jeune âge. C’est un autodidacte, il ne s’est jamais présenté à aucun concours de danse d’où sa grande personnalité et son charisme naturel. En 1999, la danseuse gitane Manuela Carrasco l’invite en tant que soliste dans son spectacle La Raiz del Grito. En janvier 2002, il crée sa première compagnie et présente le spectacle Mas alla del tiempo. En 2004, il présente son deuxième travail de compagnie, Asimetrias. En octobre 2006, il lance El Alba del Ultimo Dia, à la Biennale de Séville. L’été suivant, il crée, sous la direction de Blanca Li, le rôle de Federico Garcia Lorca, dans Poeta en Nueva York. En parallèle avec sa carrière de danseur, Andrés Marín dirige des masterclass et sa propre école de danse « Andrés Marín Flamenco Abierto » à Séville-

Attou, Kader

Director of the CCN of La Rochelle and the Poitou-Charentes region, artistic director, dancer and choreographer of the Accrorap dance company.


 Today’s hip hop creative works, independent and new dance scene creations, convey an image of French culture throughout the world.  Kader Attou can claim to be an integral part of this new dance scene.  He is one of the major representatives of French hip hop, and Accrorap is an iconic company.


 Contemporariness, blending of cultures, humanistic commitment, Kader Attou signs a dance of his times, where encounters, dialogue and sharing are the driving forces and creative sources.


 With the excitement of the discovery of break-dance in 1989, and the first shows of Accrorap, a desire was born to examine in depth the question of meaning and develop an artistic approach. In 1994 Athina marks the debuts of Accrorap on stage at the Dance biennale in Lyon. Created in 1996 Kelkemo, a hommage to Bosnian and Croatian child refugees is the fruit of a powerful experience in the Zagreb camps in 1994 and 1995. Prière pour un fou (1999), a pivotal piece in the choreographic universe of Kader Attou, attempts to re-establish the dialogue that the Algerian drama was making increasingly and painfully less probable.  


Then Accrorap broadened their scope inventing a dance that is rich and full of humanity with Anokha (2000), at the cross-roads between hip hop and Indian dance; East and West. Composed of sketches where performance, emotion and musicality intermingle, Pourquoi pas (2002), enters a universe of poetry and lightness. Douar (2004), created within the scope of the year of Algeria in France queries the issues of exile and boredom, echoing the concerns of young people in neighborhoods and housing estates in France and Algeria. Les corps étrangers (2006), an international project - France, India, Brazil, Algeria and the Côte d’Ivoire – evokes the human condition and searches for possible meeting points between cultures and aesthetic styles to construct, via dance, a space for communication to query the future. Petites histoires.com (2008), acclaimed by the critics and public alike, tells of Everyman’s France through burlesque sketches while maintaining a sensitive and committed approach. In 2008, Kader Attou was named Director of the CCN (National Centre for Choreography) in La Rochelle and the du Poitou-Charentes region, thus becoming the first hip hop choreographer to lead such an institution.


Trio (2010) takes us back to the world of the circus. Symfonia pieṡni źałosnych (2010) is a performance of the entire Symphony No.3 also known as the Symphony of Sorrowful Songs by the Polish composer Henryk Mikołaj Górecki. This creation explores all compositional aspects, is carried away by soaring vocals, penetrated by melodic forces to join the message of hope.

 In 2013, Kader Attou returns to the source of hip hop, to his very first sensations: The Roots is a human adventure, a journey, a dive into his poetical universe. Eleven of the most skillful hip hop dancers perform the piece; they form a group that is in complete symbiosis.

 Created in August 2014 for the 10th edition of the Nuits Romanes in Poitou-Charentes, Un break à Mozart, born of the encounter between the CCN of La Rochelle and the Champs-Elysées orchestra, presents a genuine dialogue between dance of today and music of the Enlightenment with the major musical work: Mozart’s Requiem.


In September 2014 for the Dance biennale of Lyon, Kader Attou created OPUS 14 for sixteen dancers, men and women, combining power, otherness, commitment and corporeal poetry in a fundamentally hip hop piece.


With Un break à Mozart as a base,  the premiere of Un break à Mozart 1.1 – a new creation by Kader Attou for 11 dancers and 10 musiciens from the Champs Elysées Orchestra  was performed in November 2016 at La Coursive in La Rochelle as part of the event “Shake La Rochelle !” the first edition of CCN’s Hip Hop festival. In January 2013 Kader Attou was made Chevalier de l’Ordre des Arts et des Lettres (Knight of the Order of Arts and Letters) and in the New Year’s honors list of 2015 was appointed Chevalier de l’Ordre National de la Légion d’Honneur (Knight of the French Legion of Honour).
