KINEMATIK ventures into the bustling world of beetles, spiders, ants, earthworms and fireflies with the premiere of INSEKTA

KINEMATIK DANCE THEATER premieresINSEKTA : The Bustling World Of Bugs

KINEMATIK Dance Theater ventures into the bustling world of beetles, spiders, ants, earthworms and fireflies with the premiere of INSEKTA, a dance exploration of the intricate and complex microorganisms that surround us.

Insects represent over 90% of multicellular life on earth, dominating the biological spectrum with over 100 million species. Collaborating with technology artist Cheng-I-Wang, KINEMATIK depicts the diversity and metamorphic cycles of insects through dance, live projections and the diverse  use of props. Fusing technology with the movement vocabulary of Breakdance, House, Vogue and contemporary modern dance, KINEMATIK creates a unique and visually stimulating dance performance.
