Bengolea and Chaignaud skim the line between popular dance and trained choreography, drawing on their immersion in club culture from London to New York. With dancers Alex Mugler, Ana Pi, and Elisa Yvelin—as well as London grime scene DJs Elijah and Skilliam of the label Butterz—they move from Martha Graham’s technique to house, challenging the expressive, communal, poetic, and discursive powers of dance. Curated by Matthew Lyons.
