Compagnie Käfig performs "Pixel"

Compagnie Käfig will be performing its dance piece entitled Pixel with Cal Performances at UC Berkeley's Zellerbach Hall on November 16 and 17, 2018.

Precision, energy, speed, power—Compagnie Käfig merges elements of Brazilian urban dance and capoeira with hip-hop, modern dance, and circus arts in its breakneck 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 outstanding dancers navigating a sophisticated interactive environment of light and lasers that confounds our perceptions of what is virtual and what is real.

"They're animated by waves of energy, as if volts of electricity were traveling from muscle to muscle and limb to limb. Then that tightly controlled power explodes into fireworks" (Times Union, Albany, NY). The Herald Sun of Melbourne desribes the performance as "A playful and ever-shifting montage of three-dimensional forms- delightful, cloying, surprising all at once."
