Borderline – Kompanie Wang Ramirez

22. September 8:00 am


They exceed all limits, including those of perception: like marionettes, the five dancers lose the ground under their feet in this perfromance by Sébastien Ramirez and Honji Wang. They fly, hover, hang from invisible threads, hanging in the air. The two award-winning shooting stars of the dance scene translate their hip-hop vocabulary into a graceful flow of movement that bluntly takes a stand in all poetry. “Borderline” is understood as a critique of a manipulative society, that is split into those who are on the ‘inside’ and those who are ‘different’ and who seem to be left out.(photo: © Agathe Poupeney)
