(B)

Choreography: Koen augustijnen & Rosalba Torres Guerrero

(B) is the powerful heavyweight clash between three boxers and seven dancers. From a variety of backgrounds, they all throw everything they have into the dance ring. In dazzling group choreographies and intimate duets, their interior worlds debate with the unrelenting outside world. Frenetic soundscapes and old arias, together with live and recorded video footage, enhance the performers. (B) is an energetic, exhausting and merciless ode to boxing, dance and life. It conveys huge warmth for faltering, ailing humanity.
