Contemporary dance group Kafig comes
The French contemporary dance group will give two presentations in Bucharest on Wednesday, June 2, and Thursday, June 3, at the Izvor Hall of the Bulandra Theatre, starting 19:00, HotNews informs. Kafig will present an original performance in which hip hop meets Brazilian fever and contemporary dance. The programme of the 11 Brazilian dancers of the Kafig contemporary dance company comprises two plays of 30 minutes each: Agwa (water) – a choreography created by Mourad Merzouki in September 2008 within the Lyon Dance Biennale – and Correria (foray), which features more prominently the tense, raw hip-hop acts of Brazilian dancers. In Agwa, the choreography is “placed under the sign of water and distils, drop by drop, an ecological message regarding this fundamental element.” In Correria, the choreography starts from a fast-paced daily life, always in a rush, a frantic and exciting race, akin to the one shaping our lives in this day and age. The Agwa & Correria programme presented by the Kafig troupe in Bucharest is part of a European tour started in January 2010. Founded in 1996, the dance troupe enjoyed a tremendous success, giving more than 1,500 performances throughout the world. The group performs in Romania at the invitation of the French Institute and the French Embassy.
