Domestic Violence

France’s Got Talent recently had a couple that performed a powerful contemporary dance showcasing the struggle of domestic violence


You do not need to speak French to understand how powerful the performance by this couple is. A couple of young dancers went onto France’s Got Talent and gave a performance that caused shock and awe.

Their performance was meant to shock and cause strong feelings. To help raise awareness about domestic violence. Dakota and Nadia are the two young dancers who gave the powerful performance.

Nadia is 21 and Dakota, 27. Their plan was to share the important message. Nadia covered her face and body in bruise-like makeup and the pair wore soft clothing, easy to stretch out to make their message more poignant.

The judges started out with smiles on their faces and ready to watch the dance but as soon as they started, every face changed. The contemporary piece was harsh and violent, the point made. Every move makes one realise how awful domestic violence is.

They were given a standing ovation from the judges and audience. The called it a high-class performance and were thankful to have seen it.

They speak only in French but thankfully the YouTube video has subtitles for those of us not well versed in French. However, as we said above, the dance itself needs no translation. Watch the performance below.
