An encounter between the traditions of Thai boxing and early 20th century romantic ballet in search of the “unimagined body”. CocoonDance dispels the physical imagery stereotypically associated with martial male warriors and fairylike female ballerinas and transforms its performers into floating, transcendent creatures. These bodies alternate between strength and fragility, explosiveness and paralysis, human and animal, desire and rejection and ultimately blend into hybrids. With this, choreographer Rafaële Giovanola once again pushes the boundaries of the human body and draws ties to her acclaimed productions “Momentum” and “Vis Motrix”.
