A visually and sonically stunning dance piece on strength and vulnerability


“Rhythm is everything in boxing. Every move you make starts with your heart, and that's in rhythm or you're in trouble.” - Sugar Ray Robinson

Koen Augustijnen and Rosalba Torres Guerrero are heavyweights in both the Flemish and international dance world. In 2016 they came to Vooruit with the captivating, internationally-acclaimed performance ‘Badke’. Augustijnen earned his stripes with Alain Platel and Les Ballets C de la B, while Torres Guerrero has danced under the guidance of Alain Platel and Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker. For their new piece ‘(B)’ the duo get their inspiration from the art of boxing.

Boxing and dancing have a lot in common: when the boxing ring is swapped for a dance floor, a sublime choreography is revealed. But how might boxing and dancing influence one another? What might boxers and dancers learn from each other? Five professional boxers – selected from boxing clubs in Ghent and Brussels – together with four contemporary dancers seek out the hidden sides of the boxer.
