Compagnie Käfig: Pixel

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).
