In the mid-90s, the style produced by the Parisian b-boying scene stunned the world with a new vision of breakdance. Wild Cat, Saïdo Lehlouh’s first choreographic attempt, created in 2018, foregrounds this style distinguished by its fluidity and its truly feline refinement. By taming the floor through touch, “Darwin” continuously builds a corporal vocabulary responsive to the needs of the moment. With his partner Johanna Faye, the other member of the Black Sheep dance company, Saïdo Lehlouh explores in Iskio, and later in Fact, the possibilities of speaking out in a choreographic dialog. In 2019, his adaptable performance Apaches arranges bodies and sets them to rhythm in a transitional space where the energy and sincere intentionality are the message.
