UNITED STATES
WASHINGTON, DC  •  Kennedy Center  •  28 February - 1 March 2014
 
Based in France, Compagnie Käfig/CCN Creteil et Val-de-Marne makes its Kennedy Center debut with Artistic Director Mourad Merzouki's Correria / Agwa. The all-male Brazilian cast performs these celebrated works influenced by hip-hop, bossa nova, and capoeira. The inspiration for both Correria and Agwa was an encounter between Merzouki and 11 young dancers from Rio de Janeiro at the Lyon Dance Biennial in 2006. The Brazilian dancers had their roots in the favelas (shantytowns) where they grew up, and their individual stories struck a profound chord with the Compagnie Käfig choreographer.
