Borderline
Company Wang Ramirez

A couple both onstage and in real life, Sébastien Ramirez, a Frenchman with Spanish parents, and Honji Wang, a German woman with a Korean mother, make their UMS debut with Borderline.

Their dance backgrounds could hardly be more different — Ramirez was a B-boy while Wang was classically trained — but they share a love of experimentation and have combined their training to create innovative approaches to movement. Borderline features a cast of six performers hooked up to an aerial rigging system, allowing them to defy gravity. Nuanced choreography explores visual metaphors of flight, struggle, freedom, constraint, and the forces that connect us and tear us apart. “The contemporary dance revolution is taking place. And dancers like Sébastien Ramirez and Honji Wang are on the frontlines.” (L’Indépendant)

Note: this performance will last approximately 70 minutes and will be performed without intermission. There will be no late seating. Please allow plenty of time to park and find your seats.

Artist Q&A. Friday, March 9, post-performance.
