Between Sky and Earth - When hip hop becomes art

53m 25s

Hip hop dance first began in the streets when dancers attracted passing audiences with their acrobatic moves and turned hip hop into a worldwide cultural phenomenon. Yet, all over the world, hip hop crews are still largely ignored by the official art scene and denied opportunites to perform on national stages – except perhaps in France.The film visits several of France’s most top-ranked dance crews as they demonstrate how they are revitalising contemporary dance with the help and direction from renowned French choreographers such as Anthony Egéa and Mourad Merzouki.
