Company Wang Ramirez: Monchichi
“Their pieces are not only beautiful, they are socially, politically involved and exceed the borders of each performer’s personal history.”—Le Monde (Paris)
Ballet-trained Honji Wang and former hip-hop B-boy Sébastien Ramirez, together known as Company Wang Ramirez, offer a boundary-transcending work that dazzles with virtuosity and kaleidoscopic new forms. In Monchichi, the dancers draw on their own backstories to inform its dynamic movement vocabulary and evocative themes of identity, love, and bridging cultural divides.
This award-winning duo has electrified the European scene with their bewitching fusions of dance, music, film, fashion, and contemporary art. Hip-hop meets contemporary dance in this emotionally sophisticated performance that will thrill Columbus dance lovers.
