A film by Christophe Chevalier
SPOKE, JACK HERROR and MAESTRO: only a few months ago they were still David, Alex and Arthur, showing off a series of now cult Tecktonik dance moves in front of their bedroom mirror. This film tells their story - three unknown teenagers who by simply posting clips of themselves on You Tube became electro dance stars, known the world over. For them, as well as an entire entertainment hungry generation, this dance expresses a newfound "joie de vivre."

The "Nouvelle cuisine" keeps surprising by its playful, conceptual and free-spirited attitude!
