Straightforward and unadulterated

In Radical Light, a creation for four dancers, choreographer Salva Sanchis uses music to combine experience-related and formal dance. ‘Experience-related’ stands for the dances that we create spontaneously at a party or at home, when we are alone. There is something instinctive about them but they are also socially determined; they have a certain elegance and finesse, and an authentic and precise relationship to the music. Formal dance, however, is what you see in dance performances, the movements are completely ‘composed’.

Discodesafinado’s fuse of minimal techno and experimental electronics inspires Salva Sanchis. Their rhythmic, contemplative sound palette proofs incomprehensible but infectious. Radical Light unleashes the musical concept of pulse on five dancers: straightforward, multilayered and unadulterated. Immerse yourself in sound and movement at an uncompromising 120 beats per minute.
