LES FORAINS, BAL­LET URBAIN

The Peak (Hong Kong) - - The Brief | Around Hong Kong -

As a nod to the “true fes­ti­val of youth and dance” (Jean Cocteau), eight hip-hop dancers will re­visit the iconic bal­let Les Forains in 1945. Evok­ing the cut­ting-edge pa­rade of a cir­cus, the ur­ban bal­let show is cap­ti­vat­ing and breath­tak­ing. An­thony Égéa from Com­pag­nie Revô­lu­tion has in­jected an elec­tri­fy­ing range of new el­e­ments into the dance through bal­let score mixed with DJ Frank2louise’s elec­tronic beats – ex­pect a mind­blow­ing per­for­mance of clas­sics, hip-hop, bal­let and ac­ro­bat­ics.

WHEN: May 26 – 27

WHERE: Hong Kong Cul­tural Cen­tre – Grand Theatre
