In the fall of 2019, multi-media artist Clément Cogitore and choreographer Bintou Dembélé metaphorically stormed the Bastille, mounting a groundbreaking production of Jean-Philippe Rameau’s baroque opera Les Indes Galantes at the Opéra Bastille. What was revolutionary was their casting of 30 mind-blowing, multi-ethnic dancers, each a veritable master of a different form of freestyle street dance — hip-hop, krumping, voguing, flexing, popping — to bring Rameau’s masterpiece about colonization and enslavement to life. Philippe Béziat’s exhilarating documentary recounts an entire year of rehearsals and preparations leading up to that unprecedented opening night.
