Late-May performance: Raw and hypnotic dance
ELLIPSES & BOKKO
May 27-28, 20:00, Dansehallerne, Pasteursvej 20, Cph V; tickets 40-125kr; dansehallerne.dk
This month, Dansehallerne is welcoming to the stage a double bill performance by two groundbreaking acts from France and the Netherlands. Ellipses tells the story of a body caught in limbo – taking us on a journey between dreams and reality, life and the afterlife. It is raw and hypnotic, cleverly using light to stress each and every movement.
Bokko is an explosive fantasy dance performance, combining eccentric music with illusionary video animation. Inspired by a South Korean dance craze, audiences can expect a show that is fast, furious and fun.
