'Princess Madoki' brings waacking to Paris's Musée d'Orsay




She has featured in Beyoncé’s music videos, choreographed a sell-out stage musical and brought underground nightclub moves to the stage of the Opéra de Paris. Now Josepha Madoki is hosting a weekend of waacking in the Musée d’Orsay’s imposing entrance hall; she tells us more about this 1970s queer subculture and how she became France’s unofficial queen of waacking. She also tells us about the phone call from her friend and colleague, Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui, which led to a video shoot in the Louvre with Beyoncé and Jay-Z. Plus, Josepha explains why sports and the performing arts are complementary disciplines as she discusses her part in the Paris 2024 Cultural Olympiad.
