Born in the 90’s, the Hip-Hop company Pockemon Crew has successed in making a name for itself within the international dancing scene: from the Lyon Operahouse parvis to the Paris and New York theatres. The group is one of the most successful in the world in the breakdance battles circuit: three times champion of France, once champion of Europe, and twice world champion.
In the show, “And…Action!”, the Pockemon Crew explore the origins of the movements used in Hip-Hop. They found its source in the cinema of the 30s and 40s.
This show blends cinema and modernity of dancing, burlesque and emotional scenes. It is also a tribute to the original city of the dancers, Lyon, where the Lumières brothers, inventors of cinema in the nineteenth century, were born.
Join us for a show where black and white cinema is colored by the energy and originality of the dancers.
The show will be preceded by dance workshops animated by the artists, on October 6th (4 pm to 6 pm) and 7th (2 pm to 4 pm) at Lycée Voltaire – West Bay.
