Italian choreographer Alessandro Sciarroni deconstructs the Schuhplattler (‘shoe-beater’), a Bavarian folk dance where the performers slap their shoes and legs with their hands, and refines it to its most essential elements, reactivating the movements in a contemporary context. Six outstanding dancers execute a seemingly limitless series of complex rhythmic sequences, giving an extreme exposition of the multiple variations that a form can take, even to the point of exhaustion.
Presented by The Dance Centre, the PuSh International Performing Arts Festival, and Il Centro Italian Cultural Centre.
