%0A Celebrated French-Algerian dancer and choreographer Abou Lagraa was at the Grand Théâtre in 2016 for the first time with El Djoudour . This season he returns with his new creation Wonderful One. Created for a duo of men and a trio of women Wonderful One has its creative roots in the belief that being wonderful is an ability to resist defining ourselves as men or women, asserting ourselves instead and letting ourselves be filled by both simultaneously. It is the ability to reach beyond gender and by taking this path, individuals become wonderful beings: truer than true, more real than real. Born in France to Algerian parents, Abou Lagraa draws inspiration from the different worlds he inhabits, as well as from classical, contemporary and hip-hop dance. When in 1997 he founded La Baraka, recognition came quickly and the fame of the company spread rapidly beyond France’s borders and his work started touring internationally. In 2016, he was awarded “Chevalier des arts et des lettres” by the French ministry of culture for his contribution to dance and various international arts-based education programmes.%0A%0A
