At MK Theatre this Tuesday and Wednesday, Dance Consortium presents Compagnie Kafig’s Boxe Boxe – an awesome show fusing boxing with dance.
As unusual to watch as it essential to view.
During the past 18 years Compagnie Kafig has given more than 2300 performances in 651 cities and 61 countries before a combined audience of more than one million.
“...each aspect of boxing has an equivalent in choreography; the ring and the stage, the gong and the curtain going up, the referee and the eagle-eyed critics, for me there are all kind of similiarites,” says artistic director Mourad Merzouki.
“So there’s a mix – the excitement of combat and fear of the spectators; the gut fear of getting badly knocked about, of taking a licking, together with that great feeling of abandoning yourself, of achieving absolute fulfilment in that magic moment on stage or in the ring.”
Live music will accompany the performance, courtesy of Debussy String.
So, fancy a ringside seat to a truly unusual performance?
