Récits d'une création
Echoing Näss (People) presented in April 2022, the Maison de la Danse and Fouad Boussouf, associate artist, wanted to bring together amateurs at the heart of a participatory project: Récits. Between January and April 2022, five artists from Fouad Boussouf's company — including two Näss performers — led dance workshops with 8 groups.
With Récits, more than 130 participants from Lyon of all ages and backgrounds took part in a collective creative process under demanding conditions. Récits gave birth to the creation of a group piece presented on the set of the Maison de la Danse on Saturday April 16, 2022. Here is the filmed documentary which highlights the experience of the participants.

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.
