Honji Wang & Sébastien Ramirez, choreographers
Jean-Philippe Barrios aka Lacrymoboy, music

Partners in life and in performance, Korean-German dancer Honji Wang and French-Spanish dancer Sébastien Ramirez explore the complexities of human relationships and modern identities through their inventive dance-theater aesthetic. Their acclaimed hip-hop-meets-tanztheater opus, Borderline, features a cast of six performers hooked up to an aerial rigging system, allowing them to defy gravity as the nuanced choreography explores visual metaphors of flight, struggle, freedom, constraint, and the forces that connect us and tear us apart. "An ingenious show by stunning performers" (The Evening Standard, London).

The running time is expected to be approximately 70 minutes with no intermission.
