Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui At La Villette

Picture of Culture Trip Paris
Updated: 27 May 2016
A prominent figure of European contemporary dance, Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui gained international acknowledgement after his collaboration with star choreographer, Akram Kahn.  In 2010, he set up his own company, Eastman, based at the Antwerp Toneelhuis. His choreographies often explore and question the subjects of identity, ethnicity, culture and sexuality.

Cherkaoui returns to Paris with two of his newest and inspiring works: Fractus V and Noetic. Noetic is interpreted by the Göteborg Ballet and stages 19 dancers in a jungle-like atmosphere created by a dazzling geometric set. In Fractus V, Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui partners with a circus artist, a flamenco dancer, a lindy-hop composer and a breakdance dancer, in a staggering fusion of influences.
