Dance

BAM and Théâtre de la Ville (Paris, France) present

Monchichi
Company Wang Ramirez

Part of Brooklyn-Paris Exchange and Tandem Paris-New York

 
 

Intercultural identities are the bread and butter of Wang Ramirez, the polyglot performance duo comprising Korean-German dancer Honji Wang and French-Spanish dancer Sébastien Ramirez. Partners in life and performance since they met dancing in Berlin, the two communicate the complexity of human relationships through their signature dance-theater aesthetic.

On a bare stage with nothing but a single wooden tree, Monchichi grows out of the spaces between the two dancers’ hybrid cultures and the movement idioms in which they’re trained: ballet, b-boying, and martial arts. Confronting paradoxes of love and difference with trademark clarity and wit, they perform a choreography of near-missed connection.
