Saïdo Lehlouh has been part of several productions with Redha Benteifour, Storm, Amala Dianor, Constanza Macras and Wang Ramirez.
Artistically grown with a b-boying/b-girling background, they have developed, over several years, a personal and original style of dance and choreographic construction:
Johanna with a versatile style built on her experiences within different dance forms, and Saïdo thanks to his refined sense of musicality and rythm, combined with both, a highly dynamic and sensual quality of movements.
Together, they created Black Sheep in 2015, produced by Garde Robe.
