A pioneer of the hip-hop movement in France, Bintou Dembélé looks into the theme of memory. A fractured memory in which stories pile one on top of another, without any link, but like so many layers inscribed within us.

Here, the choreographer assumes a veritable performance, in the sense of artistic freedom, a "choreographic concert" carried by two dancers (from the hip-hop and krump traditions), a musician and a singer. They perform in circles traced on the ground, a ritual inspired by the hip-hop culture that brings together all forms of expression. Bintou Dembélé's culture is multiple, resolutely free, and emancipated from all aesthetic divisions.
