Sorbatza | Kukai [15/06]

The Basque company Kukai presents in Cadiz the result of an artistic collaboration with choreographers Damian Muñoz and Virginia Garcia, from La Intrusa Danza. In Sorbatza four men perform a ritual through which they try to restore the balance; a symbol of war to build peace; a symbol of life to exorcize death.

The distinguish mark of Kukai is the creation of shows from traditional Basque dance, establishing strong links with other artistic disciplines, other dance styles and other ways of understanding art. The first work of the company was Deiadarra and, since 2001, they have been collaborating with the company Tanttaka Teatroa in shows including 1937, por las sendas del recuerdo, Otehitzari Biraka and Hnuy illa…
