Strange and fascinating creatures, that’s how you can best describe the dancers in VIS MOTRIX from the German company CocoonDance. They move through space like spiders, their bodies extremely tensed. Something seems to be pressing out of their torso, trying to emerge like a still unrecognizable figure. The couplings of organism and machine are beginning to better control the flows of energy, what results in a hypnotic and fascinating dance vocabulary one cannot escape.
VIS MOTRIX started out as an independent research on the techniques of breaking and krumping, modifying and transforming these street dance styles with regards to hybrid and post-human energies and impulses.
