Koen Augustijnen, one of the members of the renowned ballets C de la B, and Rosalba Torres Guerrero, a wonderful performer for Rosas and numerous other stage artists, joined forces a few years ago to work on shows that are like nothing else. They conquered the world with Badke, a personal, high-energy vision of the traditional Arab dance, Dabke, featuring ten Palestinian dancers.

For their new creation, the two artists who inhabit the stage as if it were an arena for confrontation and dialogue between cultures, languages and traditions, turn their attention to boxers, these new gladiators with a soft heart. Once again they’re bound to be able to flush out gestures of vulnerable humanity behind the appearance of virile power.
