Radical Light


Straightforward and unadulterated

In Radical Light, a creation for four dancers, choreographer Salva Sanchis combines experience-related and formal dance. ‘Experience-related’ stands for the dances that we create spontaneously at a party or at home: instinctive but also socially determined. Formal dance, however, is what you see in dance performances, the movements are completely ‘composed’.

Sanchis finds inspiration in Discodesafinado’s fuse of minimal techno and experimental electronics. Radical Light unleashes the musical concept of pulse on five dancers: straightforward, multilayered and unadulterated. Immerse yourself in sound and movement at an uncompromising 120 beats per minute.

• Salva Sanchis (PARTS, Rosas) is a co-partner in the dance organisation Kunst/Werk, together with Marc Vanrunxt. He has previously staged his own work at the Kaaitheater, such as now h e r e (2011) and The Phantom Layer (2013).
