Sébastien Ramirez, Rocío Molina & Honji Wang: Felahikum

(Perpignan/France, Seville/Spain, Berlin/Germany)

German premiere

Two almost identical women stand opposite one another. Are they doppelgänger? Attired in the black and white of yin and yang, each figure only slowly realizes how different her mirror image is and how unfamiliar its movements – the challenging staccato of flamenco confronts an elastic flow incorporating Asian martial arts and hip-hop. Rocío Molina and Honji Wang are accomplished virtuosos of their respective styles who both challenge the rules and boundaries of their world. They attack one another with dance, each seeking playfully to trump her sister. However, the overarching aim is to comprehend what the other is doing. In mirrored constellations, against a backdrop of shadow images and under streaming veils they seek the pure, shared essence of movement, creating images invested with a magical poetry.

„Sébastien Ramirez’ creations are proof that dance is made of the same substance as poetry.“ – Epoch Times

 Molina enlarges the range of vision of Flamenco through improbable and aesthetic transgressions whereas Wang bends HipHop like a reed.” – Danser, canal historique

Choreography: Rocío Molina, Honji Wang & Sébastien Ramirez
