Beat & Wolf
by KINFOLK COLLECTIVE
KINFOLK COLLECTIVE ARE PRESENTING TWO SHORT PIECES BEAT AND WOLF AS PART OF SHOOT FESTIVAL'S TRIPLE BILL, WHICH WILL TAKE PLACE AT BELGRADE THEATRE ON 17TH MARCH 2017, 8PM
Every person has a beat within them. Beat is a new short performance piece based on the concept of each person living through their own musical track. The movement in the piece is inspired by headphones and how wearing headphones on stage highlights the dancer's own unique track.
The beat of our hearts keeps us going, keeps us breathing, and keeps us enjoying every single day that we live. Beat is about expressing this joy and sharing it through performance.
Wolf is a contemporary retelling of the Red Riding Hood folk tale that delves into the anxieties of the wild and the unknown. The story weaves together ensemble folk dance, traditions, and song, to bring the audience a physical and engaging vision of the forest.
A reversal of the traditional story, we follow Riding Hood, the huntsman, and the wolf as they make their journey through the wild.
