Hip Baroque Choc
Meeting between young people from disadvantaged backgrounds and baroque music

The ‘Hip Baroque Choc’ outreach project, launched in 2016, offers high-school students the opportunity to attend workshops throughout the year and participate in a creative experience that combines Baroque music, hip-hop dance, declamation, choral singing and applied arts, supervised by professionals.

For its sixth edition, the Hip Baroque Choc will present a great show based on Mozart which will bring together about thirty musicians from Le Concert de la Loge, the soprano Chantal Santon, dancers from the Käfig company, and students from five Ile-de-France secondary schools.

Salle Gramont of the Conservatoire Jean-Baptiste Lully in Puteaux, 23 May 2022

A genuine encounter between very different social and artistic worlds, « Hip Baroque Choc » empowers young people from disadvantaged backgrounds in order to reveal their potential and reinforce their ambitions.

The “micro-chocs”

The format of the micro-choc is short: 20 minutes maximum in the middle of a math or French lesson and mini-concerts during recess.
From class to class, the artists perform a few excerpts from the show while inviting the students to react, to take part spontaneously in this impromptu performance.
This way, the links between professional artists and high school students are created and certain cultural and social resistances are overcome.

The show

A collective and participatory creation, the result of the meeting of professional artists and students, will be presented each season in public.

On this occasion, the greatest works of Baroque music will be danced, sung and reinterpreted in a show combining Baroque music, hip-hop dance, choral singing, declamation and live-painting.

The program will feature excerpts from: Les Fêtes d’Hébé, Les Indes Galantes by Rameau, Armide by Lully, as well as instrumental pieces by Biber, Bach and Vivaldi.
