ELEKTRO KIF, Blanca Li’s new choreographic work will have its
Philippine premiere on May 30, 2012, 8pm at the Cultural Center of the
Philippines’ Tanghalang Aurelio Tolentino (Little Theater). The event
is produced by the CCP in cooperation with Alliance Francaise and the
Embassy of France.
Choreographer Blanca Li takes the urban street dance style electro
and mixes it up with theatre, contemporary dance and an amazing
soundtrack. The show features an all male cast of eight exceptional
young electro dancers. Funny, fast, colorful and anarchic, it features
an especially composed soundtrack by Tao Gutierrez, which mixes techno
with electro house, afrobeat, and classical music. Blanca Li takes
electro dance away from pure performance and installs it in the
theatre scene, through a contemporaneous choreographic project.
Electro dance, invented by young people from Ile-de-France was born
in the year 2000 at nightclub parties in Paris and its suburbs. This
new style grew richer with new contributions from the hip hop
movement, mixing feet and arms special movements and others inspired
by the techno style. As an urban dance, electro is adapted to electro
house music rhythms, between the hardtechno music of northern European
countries like Belgium, Netherlands or Germany and the techno genre
from Italy. This type of dance is constantly evolving, integrating
aesthetic, technical and musical details from other forms.
Ticket prices for the May 30 show are P400 with discounts for
students, senior citizens, government employees and military
