Bringing to the UK a breathtaking mix of theatrical and stylish choreography with incomparable joie de vivre is Compagnie Kafig, the fresh, fun and funky French-based dance company. A breath-taking show which fuses the noble art of Boxing with dance. With choreography by Artistic Director Mourad Merzouki, the brutality and elegance of both these contrasting worlds collide in a spine-tingling show which packs a knock-out punch. Eight exceptional dancers blend martial arts, street and contemporary dance to create a spirited and stunning fusion of hip-hop and fisticuffs which has dazzled audiences the world over. Boxe Boxe draws on the rich pageantry and theatricality of boxing where bright red gloves effortlessly morph into puppets and punch balls explode like featherweight balloons. The dancers move in perfect unison to live music from the Debussy String Quartet, with beautifully rendered classical music including Schubert, Ravel, Philip Glass and Glen Miller. The choice and meticulous timing of the music injects a further dash of romanticism and melancholy into scenes. A stunning, joyful and inventive show, Boxe Boxe is powerful and original dance which will leave you clambering for ringside seats.
