Chriki'Z Company


Amine Boussa and Jeanne Azoulay

fiBraM brings to the stage 2 dancers, 1 soprano and 1 Oud player for a virtuoso, sensitive and poignant quartet. Suspended light bulbs guide their way in a journey where languages mix. The classical Latin songs meet the Arabic language, a quartet that summons those who together, one might think, dissonate. The complicity of bodies, Arabo-Andalusian sounds and a lyrical song that merge for a journey beyond the tangible.

Company presentation

Under the artistic direction of Amine Boussa and Jeanne Azoulay, the Chriki'Z Company, develops a work of contemporary creation declining the hip hop gesture. They develop a writing pushing the research and the requirement of the movement, whether it is performative or minimalist, but always embodied.Beyond the hexagon, they radiate in more than 13 countries. L'iniZio, presented in Avignon in 2018, won the critics' award at the KingFestival 2019 in Russia.

Amine BOUSSA - Artistic Director/ Choreographer

Born in 1983 in Algiers, Amine discovered break dancing in 2001. Spotted by the National Ballet of Algiers, he quickly became professional. His meeting with Kader Attou, with whom he will work for many years, will take him beyond the borders, and it is in La Rochelle that he chooses to settle. Eager for freedom, to push his voice and his artistic approach, he founded the Chriki’Z Company. If he had not known dance, Amine would have gone to « Les Beaux Arts ». This probably explains why he signed very early a pictorial and aesthetic work. While breaking the codes of the language from which he came. His meeting with Jeanne questions and nourishes his approach to the point that they decide to sign their work of creation with two voices.
Other artistic encounters such as those with Andres Marin (Sevilla), the musicians of the Ensemble DIVANA (Radjastan), and the director Matthieu Roy, reinforced his desire to push the transversality of disciplines.

Jeanne AZOULAY - Artistic Director/ Choreographer / Dancer

Born in 1985, Jeanne Azoulay was immersed in dance and music from an early age. Her environment is impregnated with a cinematographic culture, and theaters are very quickly familiar to her.
From 2009, she works for different choreographers: Fouad Boussouf, Babacar Cissé, Aurélien Kairo, Milène Duhameau, Nabil Hemaïzia, Abdou N'Gom, Bouba Landrille Tchouda, Mickael Le Mer etc... So many choreographers who participate in shaping the interpreter recognized for her technical and artistic qualities.
In parallel, she meets in 2012 Amine Boussa with whom she dances in his first piece Moovance. It is a true artistic encounter and their complicity will last. From then on, Jeanne becomes a main actress of the Chriki'Z Company that she now co-directs. Overcoming all forms of codes, her gestures and her technique, marked by a hybridization, are at the service of her states of body.
While she refines her research and her writing of the movement, a writing with four hands is naturally set up in the course of the pieces of the company.
