HYBRIDITY is the third part of a work cycle in which the ensemble around the choreographer Rafaële Giovanola has developed different scenarios that show our human body exposed in a radically changing world. As in the previous successful pieces “Momentum” and “Vis Motrix”, the CocoonDance Company once again draws inspiration from external body techniques in its search for the still 'unthought' body.

The starting point is the physical encounter with a different, alien form of movement. HYBRIDITY brings together two very different cultures of movement and their associated body concepts - on one hand Muay Thai (also called Thai boxes) which has been practiced in Thailand for hundreds of years, and on the other hand, the romantic ballet,  in the form for example associated with Mikhail Fokine.

Both forms of movement are part of the supported cultural heritage and continue to influence the respective traditional body images (in Asia and Central Europe) and could hardly be more contrary: on the one hand the choreographic ideal of the immaterial, l ethereal body - on the other hand a full-contact sport.

In order to be able to study the material as authentically as possible, we are in contact with the granddaughter of Mikhail Fokine, Isabelle Fokine, who administrates his heritage and is advising ballet companies worldwide for rehearsals of Fokine's choreographies, as well as for Muay Thai the former World and European champion Priest Tyron West.
