ImPulsTanz 2017

CECILIA BENGOLEA (FR/AG) & François Chaignaud (FR)


The dance floor burns red-hot when Jamaican dancehall clashes with European ballet in this new piece by the dazzling dream team, Cecilia Bengolea and François Chaignaud. Musically speaking, the Kingston sounds distilled from reggae fuse with the magic of English Renaissance madrigals. A brilliant cultural balancing act: temperamental as well as cheerful, but also competitive and dark, in pointe shoes or without, the two choreographers dance together with five guests who, confidently and full of energy, make this extreme confrontation a captivating experience.
