In a world rife with fault lines, tension and conflict, where does Man stand? What does Man do?

Caino e Abele #1 (Corpo a Corpo) presents the titular story of Cain and Abel as an allegorical warning against the plight of humanity in contemporary conflicts. The violence that our bodies experience and express is performed via the blend of dance and boxing, creating a visceral, moving experience.

After a two-year wait, the Festival is glad to welcome international dance companies to Singapore’s shores once again. Compagnia Zappalà Danza will make its debut appearance in Singapore, making this a show not to be missed!
