Elisabete Finger
BURACO (hole)

  • Tue 17.12.13 16 h

The dance platform for young people ›dynamo‹ gets underway with ›BURACO‹ (hole) a performance for children by Brazilian choreographer Elisabete Finger. Using a host of different materials, she and the dancers create a landscape in which everything is perforated and waiting to be explored. Diving in and out, disappearing, crisscrossing and resurfacing, the performers reveal an exciting world of vibrant colours behind what’s apparently visible.  The piece was created in part in residency at PACT Zollverein and is a children friendly performance experience for audience members between the ages of 0-99.
