Yvon Soglo (a.k.a Crazy Smooth) is a choreographer with the company Bboyizm. He’s also completing a long-term residency at the Centre de Création O Vertigo (CCOV), which provides support and access to its creation studio. Bboyzim is embarking on a two-year research and creation cycle that will result in IN MY BODY, a large-scale work for ten dancers, produced by the CCOV.
In collaboration with Bboyizm and the CCOV, and with the participation of artistic consultant Sophie Michaud, the FJJP will document the creation of the work, preserving it for future generations and recognizing the important role of hip-hop in the development of contemporary dance at home and abroad.
Bboyizm is committed to promote and preserve the foundation, authenticity, and essence of all street dances.
CCOV provides dance artists access to its studio—a space devoted entirely to experimentation and creation—through its short- and long-term residency programs.
