Roya the Destroya, Phax Said Cheik Ahamada and Hello Shelly are three of the six international hip hop/breakin’ street theatre performers performing in one show. Jo Tomalin talks to them about their specific acts and how they came together to perform in FrontX.
“FrontX shows a range of international street artists who combine exceptional energy and resilience. Their fascinating personal life stories are the main theme of the show. As spokespersons of our contemporary society, these performers embody the true sense of integration, since the first meaning of the verb to ‘integrate’ is ‘to make complete, whole’, and, in so doing, build a complete ensemble. What interests us most is highlighting their inner motivations and what pushes them to specialise in their unique techniques. How do these atypical individuals transcend their difficulties through their artistic practice?”
