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.

February 2 Only: Join us for a free, post-performance artist talk! A 20-minute talk with Artistic Director Kader Attou and company dancers will be held in front of the stage immediately following the Friday, February 2, performance.

“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.”—Le Monde
