Käfig Brasil at Vancouver Playhouse
Käfig Brasil incorporates the work of four innovative French choreographers—Anthony Egea, Céline Lefèvre, Octávio Nassur, and Denis Plassard—in collaboration with the Brazilian dancers, performed to a soundtrack incorporating diverse musical styles from Baroque to electronic music.
Compagnie Käfig is led by Paris-based Mourad Merzouki. The prolific Merzouki has created 21 works since founding the company in 1996. French-Algerian Merzouki studied circus arts and martial arts before turning to hip-hop and dance; this openness and versatility continues to characterize his work as a choreographer. He has received numerous awards and accolades, including the Prix SACD in 2006, Officer of the Order of Arts and Letters (2011) and Knight of the Order of the Legion of Honor (2012).
Pre-show talk: 7:15pm, Upper Lobby of the Playhouse. With Natalie LeFebvre Gnam (Plastic Orchid Factory) and Astrid Toledo (Cie. Käfig).
