Borderline (2013)



ISSUING FROM HIP HOP, SÉBASTIEN RAMIREZ AND HONJI WANG IMAGINE AN INCREDIBLE TRAP OF MOVEMENTS WHERE THE NEED FOR FREEDOM CONFRONTS COERCION.

With Borderline, created in 2013 and previously reprised twice at the Théâtre de la Ville, choreographers Sébastien Ramirez et Honji Wang haven’t only received enormous success but have etched their names at the top of the bill. With five performers, including his partner Honji Wang and a rigger, Ramirez has devised an incredible trap of sharp movements overflowing with strong sensations. Pulling on the leash, breaking his tether, there are so many metaphors for our passion for life, for our need for freedom too, irrespective of the difficulty of the context. On the themes of coercion and manipulation, Sébastien Ramirez and Honji Wang who were crowned with the prestigious Bessie Award in New York as well as many international prizes, balance rapid and profound hip hop movements, amplified by a direct and youthful grace. A fiery and intimately regenerating piece.
