At Elstad Auditorium on Thursday, May 1 at 8 p.m. (Run time: 1 hour):
Who are we? How does our cultural heritage shape our identity?
Whether you are interested in French culture, in dance and choreography, or in the arts in general, you will be spell-bound by the upcoming performance Moovance on May 1 at Gallaudet University.
Moovance is a choreographic duet by Amine Boussa and Jeanne Azoulay that delves into questions of identity, exploring the peculiar feeling of being torn between two different cultures from a French-Algerian perspective.
As their interaction evolves and unravels, it captures the connections, progress, and intimacy intrinsic to the duality of human beings.
You can get a glimpse of what the French press calls a "beautiful and sensual duo" and "contemporary dance at its best."
This event is part of the third edition of the Alliance Francaise's Transatlantic Urban Corps Festival (April 26-May 3), which will explore urban art through dance, music, film documentaries and discussions, bringing together dancers from France and from the United States for a week of one-of-a-kind events.
