Feel-good mix of Palestinian folk dance, contemporary dance, hip-hop and circus

‘Badke’ is the word ‘dabke’ - a Palestinian folk dance - in reverse. Not a coincidence, since this Belgian-Palestinian dance production shines a new light on the dabke-of-the-people. Ten young Palestinians combine traditional dance steps with contemporary dance styles, dancing until they drop. Together with choreographers Koen Augustijnen and Rosalba Torres Guerrero of Les ballets C de la B and KVS dramaturge Hildegard De Vuyst, they go looking for their own dabke. The result: a delightful, swirling performance.

  • “De dabke is entertainment, but also a way to tune out reality. A lifeline and a scourge that brings the dancers to the edge of exhaustion.” [de Volkskrant]
