The hip-hop world champions take you on a fusion of dance and live music with the Emana Quartet!
After conquering the audience of the Avignon Festival in 2018 and 2019 with Dance N ’Speak Easy, Wanted Posse is back with a new creation. In Steps on Strings, they add string musicians to the stage and pay tribute to classical music, film music, and dance which prances on the strings.
In this show, nine virtuoso musicians and dancers perform arabesques, house dance, saltos and break. Philippe Lafeuille once again directs the show and explores, in a duet with the choreographer Njagui Hagbé, this finely articulated dialogue between musicians and dancers. From this atypical mix come vibrations and sensations that can disarm us, even baffle us, yet in the end reconcile those apparently opposed universes.
A crossover of styles which goes beyond all stereotypes and aims to bring together different audiences and generations.
