Choreographer, dancer, and professor, Fouad Boussouf was trained in hip-hop dance, his style of choice, all while sustaining a spirit of curiosity for other genres, mainly contemporary ones. His heterogenous path and his work as a performer position him in a firmly modern chorographical tradition, where hip-hop engages with contemporary vocabularies and jazz, as well as the traditional dance of North Africa and contemporary circus.
While resisting labels, his work reflects these influences and explores current themes that he transforms through his performers. Fouad Boussouf is the artist associated with the Maison de la danse de Lyon and the Equinoxe scène nationale de Châteauroux. Since 2022, he has directed the Centre Chorégraphique National du Havre.
VÏA will be his first production for the Grand Théâtre.
