LA PLACE & STREETSTAR SESSIONS – is a collaboration between Swedish Street Star and the French La Place to present a wide range of aesthetic and artistic expression and to state that hip hop culture has a place in public stage. The performance has been developed especially for the Stockholm Culture Festival which in 2016 has a French theme. The idea is to create a meeting between the urban culture in Sweden and France for the inspiration and development for future cooperation between the Swedish and French urban dance scene.
