Blanca Li, a dance company located in the 10th arrondissement in Pais and who is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year, has made it a trademark to mix dancing styles: contemporary, street dance, hip hop, electro… The result? Extremely energetic shows that are both popular and very accessible. In this particular show, the challenge is technical: the dancers are in charge of putting the machines on stage into action with voluntarily minimalistic movements. They become mechanical humans directing human machines. Eight musical automatic machines, seven small robots and eight dancers are sharing the stage of "Robot".
And how did Blanca Li come up with this idea?
"I realised that I was more and more often facing a machine, at the airport, at the office, in the metro."
