In ›À mon bel amour‹, which would have been presented at PACT in March, the French-Vietnamese choreographer questions perceptions of the individual, the couple and the collective, of identity and beauty. The production brings different urban dance styles including Voguing, Waacking, Popping, Locking and Krump into mesmerising interaction with classical and contemporary dance.
