Urban Dance Shows

Inspired by her upbringing and her practice of arabo-berber and house dance styles, Sarah Bidaw presents a solo called “Al Warda.” “AmalGame 2.0” is a choreographic piece created by Ford Mckeown Larose of Compagnie Forward Movements and inspired by what scientists call Chaos Theory (better known as the “butterfly effect”). YONI Cypher, a project of Femmes Phénoménales collective, centres women artists of any medium who are immersed in Hip-Hop culture.
