Live Ideas: Badke

Called “One of the most influential dance theatre companies in the world” (The Guardian), the critically acclaimed Belgian contemporary ensemble les ballets C de la B and 10 Palestinian performers make their New York Live Arts debut with the unprecedented international dance experiment Badke, a display of passion for life and dance as a form of resistance. Created by Koen Augustijnen, Rosalba Torres Guerrero (les ballets C de la B) and Hildegard De Vuyst (KVS) in residence with 10 young dancers in Ramallah, the work unites a diverse number of dance forms ranging from the traditional dabke to modern dance, hip-hop, capoeira and circus.
