Blanca Li - Elektro Kif (Lyceum Theatre, Sheffield)
Friday, 10 February, 2012 to Saturday, 11 February, 2012
19:45

Acclaimed Spanish dancer, choreographer and filmmaker Blanca Li, who has choreographed videos for Kanye West, Daft Punk and Blur, brings her latest street dance show to Southbank Centre.

Elektro Kif takes the urban streetdance-style electro - a mix of break dancing, disco, vogue, popping and locking - and mixes it up with theatre, contemporary dance and music. It's a show about the hopes, fears, friendships, fights and rivalries of eight students, following them through a typical day at college.

The show features an all-male cast of electro dancers and a specially composed soundtrack by Tao Gutierrez, which mixes techno with electro house, afrobeat, sampling and classical music.

Blanca Li’s work focuses on the energy and movement of dance, from flamenco to classical ballet to hip hop. Her portfolio includes operas, feature films, stage pieces and music videos.

Venue: Lyceum Theatre, Sheffield

Tickets: £12.50 - £17.50, call 0114 249 6000 or visit www.sheffieldtheatres.co.uk
