Description: Have you ever seen someone pirouette on his head? And keep going and going until your own head practically spins in disbelief? This Frenchbased hip-hop company, featuring mostly Brazilian dancers, led by Artistic Director Mourad Merzouki, seamlessly weaves one movement into another, blasting through boundaries and creating work that defies simple categories. “Is it dance? Acrobatics? Performance art? Emphatically yes!” raved Ken Ross of The Republican. Compagnie Kafig has performed for more than 1 million people in 47 countries.

“…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
