HCMC – French Hiphop Night: “Sadako”

With “Sadako”, Valentine Nagata-Ramos revives a Japanese tragedy. According to one legend, anyone who folds 1000 paper cranes will see his wish fulfilled. Sadako Sasaki, a young victim of the atomic bomb of Hiroshima, was only able to make 644 origamis before being swept away by her leukemia at the age of 12 and buried by his classmates with the remaining 356 cranes that they folded for her.

This piece is an opportunity for the French-Japanese dancer to make a journey into her mixed origins by combining hip hop and Japanese dance theatrical art of butoh, and to invite us to accompany her again on the tortuous path of childhood, between pain and hope. Watch its trailer here:

Valentine Nagata-Ramos is one of the key figures of French breakdance. As a member of the first French hip hop company, she won numerous international competitions and taught breakdance on French television before creating her own company, “Uzumaki”.

The first part will be “I AM YOU” from a workshop of Valentine Nagata-Ramos with Vietnamese breakdancers whose identity will be confirmed soon.
