When men dance from the hip, it is generally considered unmanly and feminine. Five dancers indulge in precisely this movement and experiment with gender attributes.

If the issue of gender has always featured in Nadia Beugré’s work, in «L’Homme rare» she tackles it more head-on by offering an inversion of the perception of «male / female attributes» and questioning the attention paid to bodies and the qualities attributed to their movements. Starting with a game that blurs our perceptions of gender, the choreographer places the spectator in the position of a voyeur, which the artist connects to the outcome of her research on our understanding of the body, notably Black and male, in history and today.
