Electro Kif is part of FrancoPhil, the French Cultural season in Manila (Feb-Dec 2012).

About the choreographer
Blanca Li is a choreographer, film director, dancer and actress. As a dancer, she takes on a broad spectrum of physical forms of expression, from Flamenco to Classical, from Ballet to Hip-Hop. With Blanca Li, everything begins, and ends, in the energy of movement and dance.

About the show
In Elektro Kif, Blanca Li plunges us into the world of tecktonik, an urban dance form that emerged in France in the 2000s.

Here, she tells the story of young teenagers in search of an identity. Set in a classroom, playground, gym, and wherever else the youth can express their emotions and impulses, Elektro Kif is a spectacular display of physical prowess and twirling antics with beautiful tecktonik routines juxtaposed with techno and classical music.

Elektro Kif is a show about the hopes and fears, friendships and rivalries of an all male cast of exceptional young electro dancers. Humourous, thrilling, colourful and anarchic, Elektro Kif features a unique soundtrack of a mix of techno with electro house, afrobeat, sampling, and classical music especially composed by Tao Gutierrez.

This project offers the latest "French Touch" in urban dance, a phenomenon that challenges our vision of contemporary dance! Definitely a must see!
