A queue composed of solitary, neurotic, ghostly bodies. Bouba Landrille Tchouda offers a reflection on the complexity and difficulty of human relationships. Those who once they're not home are "in war mode", bubbling, under tension. Each represents a "potential danger" for others. He observes, shared between empathy and irony laughter, the quest for individual identity and its various manifestations, from the innate need for seduction to the exacerbated competitiveness, through the necessary exposure and the risks it induces.

Tchouda, Bouba Landrille
As with many hip-hop dancers, his learning begins in a self-taught way. In 1995, he decided to found the company Aca in Saint-Martin-d'Hères, with Habib Adel, dancer of the same generation. Their first creation, presented in 1996 as part of the Rencontres Danse Ville Danse in Paris, allows them to become a reference company in hip hop dance in the Rhône-Alpes region.
Influenced by urban and world culture, this artist enjoys many kinds of dance, including hip hop, capoeira and contemporary dance. For him, every genre of dance is a new world to tackle, to move in, to sweat in, to turn upside down, to help everyone find their humanity, to question the meaning of their future, their desires.
Like many hip-hop dancers, he was initially self-taught, but gradually began to explore other disciplines like capoeira and contemporary dance.
In 1995, he decided to found the dance company ACA in Saint-Martin-d'Hères, with one of his contemporaries, Habib Adel. Their first creation, presented in 1996 as part of the Rencontres Danse Ville Danse (Danse Ville Danse Encounters) in Paris, made their name as the urban dance company to be reckoned with in the Rhône-Alpes region.
It was during this time that Bouba met the choreographer Jean-Claude Gallotta, director of the CCN in Grenoble (National Choreography Centre). This meeting resulted in a duet called SMH. Choreographed by Jean-Claude Gallotta, this duet forms an integral part of the piece La rue (“The street”), presented by the Emile Dubois group in January 1997 at Suresnes.
His national and international tours – with Aca and Accrorap – have allowed Bouba to establish his reputation as a choreographer both in France and abroad.
In 2001, with Eric Mézino, he founded the Malka Company whose first show was Paroles de sable, paroles de vent (“Words of sand, words of wind”).
