Un temps pour tout

Sovann Rochon-Prom Tep

Children and adults, come on in! In a cozy atmosphere, the hip-hop dancers Pax, Jigsaw and Sangwn express themselves in a spirit of sharing. Raw, explosive, joyful. 


Children and adults, come on in! Enjoy the living room lamps, indoor plants and dozens of cushions. In this cozy atmosphere, the inventive and generous choreographer Sovann Rochon-Prom Tep combines the driving energy of three hip-hop dancers and two musicians to reveal their unique artistry. 

Un temps pour tout pays tribute to these talented artists and the incredible complicity they share. And the dance keeps on coming – in solos, duos and trios. These live wire performers freely pass on the baton, supported by the eclectic rhythms and distortions of drums and keyboard. With the loose ambience of a church basement talent show, Pax, Jigsaw and Sangwn exude power and fragility in a spirit of sharing. It’s raw, explosive, joyful. A moment for everyone. Together.
