The French Wingz Crew gave Filipino mall-goers a glimpse of the French hip-hop scene during their performance at the SM Aura Premier Sky Park. A joint partnership between Alliance Française de Manille and SM Aura Premier, with the support of the Embassy of France to the Philippines, the event promoted French artistry and culture through dance and music. Hip-hop dancers Archad Ali and Stevens Taillasson also known as Crackers formed the French Wingz Crew when they became partners and won a dance battle in 2008. Archad is a hip-hop enthusiast who made his first steps in the industry with a local group named Afro Jam while Crackers is a hip-hop dancer and a circus performer. They have toured around the world showcasing their unique talent. In 2013, they created their first piece called “Mistral Gagnant,” which helped them join competitions such as France Got Talent, Got to Dance Germany among others. During their SM Aura Premier performance, the duo wowed the audience with PoéGraphie and Recontre Parisienne, two 20- minute performances that combined acrobatics ad poetry. PoéGraphie is about the aesthetic universes of the two characters who find a rare complementarity through their meeting. Rencontre Parisienne, on the other hand, is a poetic hip-hop duet about how the two foreigners meet in Paris and try to communicate with each other despite the language barrier. The French Wingz Crew performance is one of the many cross-cultural events that happened at SM Aura Premier.
