Danseur, c’est pas un métier

This documentary relates the meeting between director Antoine Colnot, writer Anne Rehbinder and five up-and-coming dancers from underprivileged neighbourhoods in Lyon. Joining forces with the choreographer Amala Dianor, the trio decided to write the piece Urgence for them on the question of emancipation. As the show was being put together, Karym, Marwan, Freddy, Elliot and Mohamed discovered artistic creation, confronted their dream of becoming professional dancers, and wrestled with being told that “dancing isn’t a job”.
