Correria Agwa

Correria (running) plunges us into a frantic, hectic race just like the one that governs our daily lives. Agwa (water) is all about water, at once a vital component of our bodies, a precious, vital, even natural resources to be economized and preserved, and a symbol of renewal.

The trigger for Correria Agwa was an encounter between Mourad Merzouki and 11 young dancers from Rio de Janeiro at the Lyon Dance Biennial in 2006. The Brazillian dancers had their roots in the favelas, and their individual stories struck a profound chord with Merzouki, choreographer for Company Kafig. The dancers mix hip-hop, capoeira, samba, electronic music, and bossa nova to create a dance with amazing acrobatics, stuffed energy and invention.

A major figure on the hip-hop scene since the early 1990s, choreographer Mourad Merzouki works at the junction of many different disciplines: to his exploration of all hip-hop styles, he adds circus, martial arts, find arts and live music. Without losing sight of hip-hop movement’s roots, of its social and geographical origins, this multidisciplinary approach opens up new horizons and reveals complete new outlooks.
