Nana ou est-ce que tu connais le bara ?

A dance performance on sex and work based on Émile Zola

Nana here is the heroic figure of the poor, yet strong woman who understands the workings of social power and seeks to improve her situation by making the most of her assets. Based on the codes of urban dance, notably coupé-décalé, the La Fleur collective introduces great physical intensity to this free contemporary and Afro-European adaptation of Zola’s novel.
