ABOUT THE PROJECT 

  

The starting point of "RUNthrough" is a wide variety of encounters and research with different “bodies”:  dancers meet rapper, actors, folklore and sport clubs and voguing community. 

A project in which choreographic styles intermingle to create a fascinating composition that combines a plurality of body languages. Creative experiments with movement have emerged from the joint research of four workshops with multiple performative universes: the energy of the Kud Kolo troupe, the vivacity of the rappers Kamau & the Wolf, the voluptuousness of the voguers of The Iconic Kiki House of Juicy Couture and the sensitivity of the artists of Theater Hora. 

The gestural material collected during these residencies becomes a source of inspiration. On stage, eight dancers and a live DJ translate and transform them into a strange and innovative language. The fusion of these influences generates a liberating flow that flows over the audience, supported by the beats of musician Franco Mento. The performance creates a surprising perception of the body in motion.
