Scandale. Pierre Rigal's shamanic piece investigating the birth of choreography: is music or movement the mother of dance?

Set against a simple backdrop, the soundtrack ranges between extremes, from ambient chamber music to electronic sound effects. Simultaneously, words, cries and scandalous chants exert energy, as what begins as disorganised chaos slowly falls into structured choreography and a hip hop spectacle.

Scandale stars dancers Steve ‘Lelong’ Kamseu, Camille ‘Kami’ Regneault, Julien ‘Bee D’ Saint-Maximin, members of b-boy crew Yeah Yellow, as seen on the Breakin’ Convention 2017 Luxembourg and USA tour, as well as at Sadler’s Wells Sampled 2018.

Breakin’ Convention: Presents... is an initiative to programme full-length works at Sadler’s Wells, providing the finest platform for grassroots hip hop theatre makers, as well as welcoming the vision of contemporary choreographers working with street dance forms.

This is hip hop dance theatre at its most curious.
