General Admission

Precision, energy, speed, power – France’s acclaimed Compagnie Käfig merges elements of Brazilian urban dance and capoeira with hip hop, modern dance and circus arts in its breakneck productions. Created in collaboration with French digital production studio Adrien M & Claire B, Pixel is a masterpiece featuring the company’s 11 outstanding dancers navigating a sophisticated interactive environment of light and lasers that confounds our perceptions of what is virtual and what is real. A global phenomenon, Pixel is a surreal brew of bodies and abstractions yielding a visionary approach to both video and bodily gesture.

“A playful and ever-shifting montage of three-dimensional forms – delightful, cloying, surprising all at once.” Herald Sun (Australia)

“They’re animated by waves of energy, as if volts of electricity were traveling from muscle to muscle and limb to limb. Then that tightly controlled power explodes into fireworks.” Times Union
