THE PERFORMANCE

Pulsating, rough, raw and explosive with vulnerable and emotional moments. A performance which might force you to the edge of your seat. A melting pot of intense collaboration between movement, music, lighting and video projection. Bringing to the stage a powerful effect.

Six dancers of top quality. An energetic and powerful dance performance in authentic Subjazz style and expression. The dancers intricate and complex movements together with the stage design, bring alive the energy that arises when a fracture erupts.
