A phenomenon that challenges our vision of contemporary dance! A must see.
The Embassy of France, the Alliance Francaise de Manille and Rustan’s in partnership with the Cultural Center of the Philippines present Electro Kif, the new dance creation of world-renown choreographer Blanca Li and her dancers, on May 30, 8:00 pm at the Little Theatre of the Cultural Center of the Philippines.
Blanca Li is a world famous choreographer, film director, dancer and actress. As a dancer, she takes on a broad spectrum of physical forms of expression, from Flamenco to Classical, from Ballet to Hip-Hop. With Blanca Li, everything begins, and ends, in the energy of movement and dance.
In Elektro Kif, Blanca Li plunges us into the world of tecktonik, an urban dance form that emerged in France in the 2000s. Here, she tells the story of young teenagers in search of an identity. Set in a classroom, playground, gym, and wherever else the youth can express their emotions and impulses, Elektro Kif is a spectacular display of physical prowess and twirling antics with beautiful tecktonik routines juxtaposed with techno and classical music.
Blanca Li counts on eight performers chosen not only for their mastery in the field of electro dance, but also for their ability to embody characters on stage.
Elektro Kif is a show about the hopes and fears, friendships and rivalries of an all male cast of exceptional young electro dancers. Humourous, thrilling, colourful and anarchic, Elektro Kif features a unique soundtrack of a mix of techno with electro house, afrobeat, sampling, and classical music especially composed by Tao Gutierrez. This project offers the latest "French Touch" in urban dance, a phenomenon that challenges our vision of contemporary dance! Definitely a must see.
Elektro Kif is on tour in Southeast Asia in May and June 2011. Filipino audiences have a chance to see them on stage in Manila at the Cultural Center of the Philippines on May 30 and in Cebu On May 26.
