Energy and Exhaustion Lecture: French Moves

October 7, 2019, 7:00 PM

Free

For more than two decades, le hip hop has shown another face of France: danced by minorities associated with immigration and the suburbs, it has channeled rage against racism and unequal opportunity and offered a movement vocabulary for the expression of the multicultural difference that challenges the universalist discourse of the Republic.

Felicia McCarren is Professor of French at Tulane University. From hip-hop dance classes in the Paris suburbs to the national staging and international touring of French urban dance companies, she follows the French "mouv'" of a state-funded choreographic phenomenon.
