The young HipHop company from Denmark under the direction of Lene Boel makes its German and festival debut. With their tremendous physical strength and physical expressiveness, the young dancers are almost reminiscent of circus artists. Breathtaking!
The utopia of the perfect human. Arctic life vs. Global warming. The power of the spirit. Choreographer Lene Boel packs a great deal into her two-part work about the power of the North. However, the focus is always on contemporary issues in a performance that shifts between ancient myths, real-life experiments and science fiction: can we really ignore traditions and want a world full of supermen and –women? After seeing the performers, you might be prepared to believe in the perfect, superior body. In a mix of rituals and urban dance, wildness and softness, muscle-bound yet also supple, they appear to be not of this world.
