Zoetrope I & II

_ february, 8th 20h at BOZAR/Brusels

A cutting edge dance collaboration between Beijing Modern Dance Co (China) and Cie 13/Rosa Mei (Belgium), Zoetrope I & II probes modernisation in China through evolving perceptions of time and space, from hutongs to massive, bright, shiny Tesco wonderlands. New and old China co-exist, sometimes gracefully, sometimes squashed together like ungainly non-sequiturs. Limbs move like traffic patterns seen from skyscrapers at night.

Images of high speed factory automation and digital spam serve as a backdrop for bodies dashing towards pixelated prosperity.
