Having lived in France for a year, I can attest that there is a certain “Je ne sais QUOI” about the way French people dance. Even when they’re out on a Friday night, it’s simply different with some 1940s swing mixed into urban break dancing. It’s also incredibly amusing to watch, and sinfully simple to start dancing along.
The 30 year old self-taught dancer from Lyon, France is successfully pursuing a faultless career.
From the street to the theaters, from the urban scene to the rural world, the relationship with his audiences, to all generations, is at the heart of Aurélien Kairo’s creative process.
Check him out on YouTube and see for yourself. This should, if nothing else, inspire some new dance moves for later tonight. And, a new interpretation of the music genre “Hip Hop.” I want to see him keep up this kind of energy for 50 minutes straight of dancing with no intermission… Can he do it??
The performance is $18 at the door. It’s expected to last 50 minutes without intermission. St. Stephens Church is located at 1525 Newton Street NW.
