DEFILLES


L’YONNE RÉPUBLICAINE - July 2002
"[...]On DJ Mouss’ original work, the two young women bring a fresh and feminine touch to the technicial qualities and physical performances well known to Hip Hop. Défilles describes the two women’s everyday life, affirming their personalities through their reactions to trivial matters. They break, they battle, with humour and femininity, in a stupefying ballet without pause. Sadia Lbaz and Anne N’Guyen showed this evening, thanks to the strength of their expression, that French feminine Hip Hop is growing in power."
Gerard Maison - The music festival started off well.

CASSANDRE- January-February 2002
"When the girls take place in the break dance, masculine “property” in the Mouv, attitudes are being altered. Girls grasp this physical dance. […]. The pioneer is Christine Coudun. The B3 were the first to anticipate the fact that this culture was going to mature with its actors’ experiences. The 2001 creation is called Défilles. In this duet, the two girls liberate themselves from the usual themes and snatch the break in a brand new way […]. Following the surprise, adhesion is absolute."

LES SAISONS DE LA DANSE - May 2001
"Going beyond rivalry, dance here becomes [regarding Défilles] a vessel for friendship and a true theatrical language, though rather inspired by contact dance than mime. Marilyn Berry and Malika Zgaren conceal a physical tour de force behind a huge dose of humour, taking part of their feminine intimacy to the stage. Surprising the audience, they laugh about themselves with destabilizing courage."
