We welcome Compagnie Käfig for their UMS debut performance, February 14-15, 2014 in Ann Arbor's Power Center. Artistic director Mourad Merzouki is at the forefront of the international hip-hop dance scene. Käfig’s sensational double bill of Correria and Agwa derives from an encounter between Mourad and 11 young male dancers from Rio de Janeiro at the Lyon Dance Biennial in 2006. Their individual stories about life in the favelas (Brazilian shanty towns) and their determination to make something of themselves inspired Mourad to create two heart-stopping works that showcase the young Brazilians’ irresistible cocktail of athletic samba, hip-hop, and capoeira dance styles, highlighting astonishing acrobatic skills and dazzling virtuosity.
