Created by Belgian choreographers Koen Augustijnen, Rosalba Torres Guerrero (les ballets C de la B) and Hildegard De Vuyst (KVS) in residence with 10 young dancers in Ramallah, Badke unites a diverse number of dance forms.
Badke is not a search for a long-lost authenticity, but rather a nuanced expression of both a sense of belonging and a desire to be part of the wider world. But behind the relentless energy and joy also lie darker moments, alluding to life under occupation and violence. This other reality seeps into the celebratory surface of Badke. The dancers push themselves to new extremes, driven by Nasser Al-Faris’ infectious score. But in the end, however, one thought prevails: We will dance until we collapse.
