Hip-hop is a tough game in which only the best survive. In the heavily male-dominated hip-hop industry, principal dancer and choreographer Marion Motin has set out to demonstrate that in a universe of Hip-hop, women can ‘own’ the place.
Motin constructs In the Middle like a movie with light a key part. Marion Motin uses spotlights to mimic the flashing lights of cameras in order to intensify the atmosphere. She loves images and displays that defy obvious explanations – indeed, she describes the show as “a multitude of emotions, encounters, stages, as well as music, images, gestures …”, allowing her audiences to contribute to making their own interpretations.
Cross–border choreographer, Marion Motin started lessons in classical dance at just five. In 1996, she started dancing on the streets realising her passion for Hip-hop. She has worked with pop sensation Madonna and Belgian singer Stromae, which expanded her hip-hop opportunities. In 2015, she also collaborated with Christine & The Queens for her tour Chaleur Humaine.
The performance will last for approximately 1 hour with no interval.
Open to every ticket-holder of the performance.

In 2009, Motin created an all-female dance group called ‘Swaggers’ to show girl power’s influence on Hip-hop. Swaggers quickly conquered the realms of theatre, becoming increasingly popular in Europe through though a diversity of styles and code-breaking attitude. The Swaggers’ aim is to eliminate that invisible line of segregation between hip-hop being socially acceptable and being professionally recognised.
