Location: Kresge Little Theater

HIP-POP in French : Contemporary Theater, Film, Dance, Comics and Graphic Arts

A choreographer and composer, Franck II Louise is a pioneer of the French hip hop scene. He combines music and dance in a highly original manner and the musicality of movement lies at the heart of his work.
He is presently preparing a new creation titled "Konnecting Souls" which will have its premiere in Paris at the end of October, using live motion capture equipment to generate sounds. Fitted with sensors linked to a musical interface, the dancers compose the music
of the show in real time and are becoming musical instruments. The usual process of dance / music creation is turned on its head : here, both dance and music come into being simultaneously. For this stop in Boston, during a lecture/demonstration, Franck II Louise will present his process, the technologies involved, and excerpts of his new piece.
