The inspiration for both Correria and Agwa was an encounter between Mourad Merzouki and 11 young dancers from Rio de Janeiro at the Lyon Dance Biennial in 2006. The Brazilian dancers had their roots in the favelas, and their individual stories struck a profound chord with the Compagnie Kafig choreographer. In both pieces, the dancers mix hip-hop, capoeira, samba, electronic music and bossa nova to deliver a complex, inventive dance full of amazing acrobatics and explosive energy. Correria (Running) plunges us into a frantic, hectic race just like the one that governs our daily lives - bodies, movement and a show that takes your breath away! Agwa (Water) is all about water, at once a vital component of our bodies, a precious natural resource to be economised and preserved, and a symbol of renewal.
