Käfig’s double bill derives from an encounter between Artistic Director Mourad Merzouki and 11 young male dancers from Rio de Janeiro at the Lyon Dance Biennial in 2006. Their stories about life in the Brazilian shanty towns struck a profound chord with Merzouki and inspired him to create two works that showcase the young Brazilians’ virtuosity. The company’s combination of hip-hop, capoeira, samba, electronic music and bossa nova culminates in a dance performance filled with acrobatic skills.
Starting at $10
