MELTING JAR

Apr 25, 2020, 7:00 PM

wpZimmer, Gasstraat 90, 2060 Antwerp, Belgium

MELTING JAR  is an explosive dance project led by choreographer Marco Torrice in collaboration with Dance students from the Antwerp Conservatory and KunstZ . Melting Pot is an energetic dance jam in which professional and self-taught dancers, from a wide range of styles and cultural backgrounds, meet, challenge and liberate each other: from Contemporary to Hip-Hop, from Freestyle to Voguiging. The dancers improvise on the basis of learned movement rules.  The aim is to blend the different styles and cultures into one big party. The stage becomes a meeting place to release feelings and emotions (such as joy, anger and sensuality) while dancing.  Melting Pot is somewhere between a performance and an exuberant dance party in which the Western academic dance canon is questioned. DJ on duty during the performance jam and the PARTYYYY is DJ Pedrolito Radioglobal. His refined Dembow, Reggaeton and electronic skills guarantee a solid musical set that seamlessly connects the different cultures and styles and encourages exchange. Get your most comfortable and glamorous clothes out of your closet and come dance with us!   Concept:  Marco Torrice◊Dancers:  Caupenne Jhayar Junior, Ivona Medić Nicolić, Jerneja Fekonja, Joachim Noël, Lucas Katangila.

MELTING POT is an explosive dance project by Marco Torrice in collaboration with dance students from the Antwerp Conservatory and kunstZ. 

Melting Pot is an ever-evolving dance practice that works as a meeting place for dance challenge and exchange. Dancers from different styles and cultural backgrounds enter in a dialogue and liberate different kinds of feelings and emotions. In between a performance and a party, a pedagogy and participatory dance, Melting Pot is a dance device that aims to create a horizontal space were local traditions can overlap with global hypes. The cast is a mixed group of professional, non-professional, academic and self-taught dancers. From Contemporary to Hip-Hop, from Freestyle to Voguing. 

DJ Pedrolito Radioglobal accompanies the dancers with a solid Dembow, Reggaeton set. After the jam, his beats will guide you to the dance floor join the party! The presentation on Day of the Dance, Saturday 25 April at 7 PM, is a collaboration between wpZimmer, KunstZ and students of the Conservatory Antwerp. The performance will be followed by an open door jam session. Put on your most comfortable and glamorous clothes to join the dance!
