Compagnie Käfig (France)

Boxe Boxe

with live music from the Varèse String Quartet

'As a symbol of the enduring appeal of art over combat it could hardly be more powerful. An absolute knockout' The Stage

Make sure you get a ring-side seat for a show that really packs a punch.

Strength meets elegance in Compagnie Käfig’s spirited jumble of hip-hop and fisticuffs, in which eight exceptional performers fuse dance and the noble art of boxing. Choreographed and directed by Mourad Merzouki, Boxe Boxe draws on the theatricality of the boxing ring. Gloves morph into puppets. Punch balls explode like balloons. All set to live music by Schubert, Ravel, Philip Glass and Glenn Miller, performed by an onstage string quartet who really are part of the action. 

This is choreography at its most unexpected, with a classical score adding a dash of romanticism to a knock-out show.
