Compagnie Käfig

Pixel

November 16–17, 2018


Note: EVENT CANCELLED
Due to the persistent unhealthy air quality in the Bay Area as a result of the tragic California wildfires, Cal Performances at UC Berkeley has cancelled both its Friday, November 16 and Saturday, November 17 8pm presentations of Pixel by Compagnie Käfig in Zellerbach Hall. Cal Performances is making every effort to reschedule Compagnie Käfig in the near future and looks forward to welcoming the company back to Berkeley at another time.

Compagnie Käfig merges elements of Brazilian urban dance and capoeira with hip-hop, modern dance, and circus arts in its break-neck productions. Pixel was created by founder Mourad Merzouki in collaboration with the French digital production studio Adrien M/Claire B and features the company's 11 dancers navigating an interactive environment of light and lasers that confounds our perceptions of what is virtual and what is real.
