Company Wang Ramirez: Borderline
Returning to The Clarice after their sold-out performance in 2017, Sébastien Ramirez and Honji Wang’s expanded choreographic language explores the tension of physical forces and social boundaries that reflect the reality of being tethered together in complex communities. Attached to cables, yet with great fluidity, five virtuosic dancers thwart gravity through hip-hop, acrobatics, levitation and stunning visual poetry.
“It isn’t enough for Borderline to just be awesome to watch. It opens itself up like hip-hop knows how to do.” —Le Monde
