Dark Matter
Cena 11/Alejandro Ahmed

In cosmology, dark matter describes a form of matter whose existence can only be proven by the effect of its gravity on visible bodies and objects. In the choreographic event that Cena 11 calls “Dark Matter”, it forms systems of muscles, skeletons and emotions as a secret symptom – everything that moves harbours potential for dance. Driven by intense rhythms, illuminations and images, the punks of the Brazilian dance scene radically transcend boundaries by conceiving of digital space as nature, as a natural continuation of our broken, imperfect bodies. High-energy movements discharge between organisms, sounds and pixels. “Dark Matter” will simultaneously take place live on stage as a European premiere and be streamed online worldwide.
