C'est ça la vie !?

Artistic director Riyad Fghani
Dance performance Pockemon Crew

At a time when the media are inflicting upon us the misfortune and hatred of the world, the question of our own future has never been as relevant as it is today. Youth owes itself an ideal; ours resounds like a slogan: united to advance! Our lives are like illegible scenarios which predestine our story, a moment when everything can come to a stop and in which we draw on a mad rage in order to continue upon our way. It is the idea of being together which attracts us and makes us stronger. Each one of us becomes a source of inspiration to others. So we dance, and searching for our movements in the exploration of our art seems derisory in the face of all that is going on around us, but when we dance we are current affairs. Through this piece our modest intention is to create an awareness of our capacity for reflection and creation that leads us to the following observation: we are not to be spectators but actors in our own lives, in spite of all adversity.

Fghani, Riyad

Born June 19th, 1979, near Chalon-Sur-Saône, he began hip-hop at the age of 15 by watching his older brother and his friends dance the Smurf. In 1995, he moved to Lyon and perfected his movements and technique through intensive training. He took part in the Biennale de la Danse in 1998 with the Espace Jeune in Lyon’s 6th district. Present from the early stages of Pockemon Crew, he acted as a unifying force.
Self-taught and well-rounded in hip-hop dance, Riyad is opening up to different horizons. He is thus working with the company HYPNOSE for the creation "Clandestin de Mes Rêves" (1999). In November 2000, he joined the Opéra National in Paris (Opéra Bastille), dancing in the choreographic play "La chauve-souris" (The Bat) under the direction of Coline SERREAU and Laura SCOZZI. These encounters with various professionals - contemporary, classical and hip-hop dancers, circus artists, mimes, actors and tenors, opened him up to other ways of working.
This artistic enrichment encouraged him to develop artistic writing for the company Pockemon Crew, with whom he participated in numerous competitions in France and around the world. In 2004, he directed the first creation for the company, "Sii…si!" in which he displayed all of the energy and movement technique that makes hip-hop dance so beautiful. "C'est ça la vie?!", the second play for which he was artistic director, opened La Biennale de la Danse in Lyon in 2006. An immensely talented dancer, since 2000 he has made it a point of honour to transmit his passion and love of hip-hop to as many people in France and abroad as possible. At the same time as his role as artistic director in the company, since 2005 he has been supervising the Smockemons, a new generation of break-dancers who are an integral part of the company.
