Blanqua Li

ROBOT by Blanca Li

Imagine a ballet where NAO robots and humans dance to Maywa Denki’s mechanical musical orchestra, whose instruments double as witty art installations. Brimming with good-natured humor and emotional insight, this startling international hit by Blanca Li — who has collaborated with the Paris Opera Ballet and the Metropolitan Opera and choreographed films for Pedro Almodovar, videos by Beyoncé and Daft Punk, and Jean-Paul Gaultier’s runway shows — is an upside-down trip through a magical, topsy-turvy world in which everything becomes its other. Human dancers become robots and robots dance like humans in a fantastical trip into the future.

ROBOT premiered at Montpellier Danse 2013 and since them has been touring all year long, in many different countries, from New York BAM to more than 50 French theaters.

“a very powerful visual show filled with stage effects, playful choreography and pungent humor” — El Pais

Up to 15 people on tour (plus robots!)
Audience capacity: Up to 2,000

Fête de la danse

BLANCA LI’S GIANT DANCE FEST & MOB

To be staged as a ticketed event like a giant ballroom for up to 3 days (and 3 nights) outdoor or in large capacity venues for thousands of people who just want to learn all kinds of dance moves and have the time of their life.

The gathering of thousands of captive participants warrants an infinite variety of activities and alternative revenue streams. Daytime and nighttime themes (silent disco night) and styles shift to adapt to the public profile.

The core of the event is set on a giant video installation of up to 20 screens scattered across the designated space. Staged music and dance videos are projected in a continuous loop on these screens, featuring short (5-10 minutes) video dance lessons by a series of exotic and or contemporary dance teachers who talk directly to the public, leading the way with very simple steps and choreography.
Live choreographers and dancers can also be added to further guide and or perform.

In a matter of minutes, one can make their first steps of salsa, learn the basic ballet positions, discover how to move the hips for bellydancing, or the feet for flamenco zapateado!

No audience limit and no artists on tour – just a HD with the music and dance videos along with a
technical rider.

COME DANCE WITH US!
