At the intersection of street and club cultures, NY-based choreographer Tatiana Desardouin and artist Nubian Néné come together to present Les 5 Sens X The Intermission.
Designed by Desardouin and first launched in Geneva, Les 5 Sens features live music, dance, food, and drinks in an immersive performance designed to engage all five senses. The multisensory experience within a cultural party aims to build bridges between art forms and communities through the prism of hip-hop.
For this Crossing The Line Festival edition, Desardouin collaborated with Néné to spotlight The Intermission’s unique, performative Waacking event within the context of Les 5 sens. The Intermission, organized and produced by Néné, unifies generations by curating emerging and experienced waackers, helping to further develop choreographic and performance skills.
Of Haitian lineage, Tatiana Desardouin was born and raised in Switzerland and is based in New York. She is a professional dancer, choreographer, instructor, consultant, organizer, and curator, with a master’s degree in adult education and a bachelor’s degree in psychology (University of Geneva).
Nubian Néné, born in Montréal, is known in her community for her waacking and house dance styles and as a well-versed dancer and unique and powerful choreographer—with an ability to wear many hats, including host, judge, performer, and director.
