Karima, Auriane, Valentine and Carlota testify as to how they have found in the energy of these gestures the possibility to express themselves and move beyond the very issue of gender. 

A genuine pioneer of breakdance, Karima uses the fluidity and suppleness of her body to constantly experiment with new movements, seeking for surprising support points. As for the very young Carlota, she turns her small size into an advantage to get an edge during battles mixing boys and girls, often older than her. Among her opponents we discover Auriane, who trained as a gymnast. French champion title holder, she is getting ready to compete with her partner in the Battle of the Year in Germany. A young choreographer, Valentine explores, through the performance she is staging or in duo with Anne Nguyen, “another femininity”: she plans to make visible an “interiorised” femininity that is apparently concealed in everyday life. By highlighting the paths of these four young women, Nadja Harek emphasises how breakdance ultimately relies on a unique energy, that of a fighting spirit where male and female physically converge.
