Compagnie Zahrbat (France) - El Firak at Breakin' Convention 2009
Compagnie Zahrbat (France) perform El Firak at Breakin' Convention 2009
After travelling to Palestine with the Compagnie Accrorap and witnessing the wall that has been built between Israel and the West Bank, he was moved to create a piece about human absurdity. El Firak does not so much deal with the war but with the families torn apart by the conflict and its arbitrary political decisions. Bouchelaghem’s dance expresses human suffering and disbelief in the face of a tragic situation with great sensitivity. His Hip Hop-inspired movements tell a thousand tales.
