What does it take for dance and jazz music to be folding in love again today? 3 dancers and 3 jazz musicians attempt to get closer by sharing the same polyrhythmic language.
House dancers, contemporary dancers and jazz music infect each other and anybody who is watching through the immediate corporal tension of the pulsating uneven rhythms, whose embodiment gives breath to the groove which spreads from all sides, at every angle, to every degree. Dancers realize an unfamiliar improvisational independency and musicians learn how to see, touch and hear dance. Infectious is how you join the conversation that jazz has always been speaking, the cypher which has always meant everything and nothing.
