Boussouf, Fouad

A choreographer, dancer and teacher, Fouad Boussouf trained as a hip-hop  dancer – his favourite style – but takes inspiration from different  dance forms, including contemporary dance. His multidisciplinary career  and experience as a performer make for a resolutely modern approach to  choreography and dancing, where hip-hop meets and merges with  contemporary expression, traditional North-African dances and new  circus. Difficult to classify, his work fuses these influences and  addresses pressing contemporary topics through the performances of his  dancers.
