“An ingenious show by stunning performers.” The Evening Standard (U.K.)

“It isn’t enough for Borderline to just be awesome to watch. It opens itself up like hip hop knows how to do.” Le Monde (France)

Sébastien Ramirez and Honji Wang create dance-theater works that are deeply rooted in hip hop and street culture, but also thrive on blending different artistic traditions to enlightening artistic effect. Created for six performers – five dancers and an aerial rigger – Borderline is a series of stunning and intimate vignettes about human relationships, love and hate, joy and sorrow and how the dialogue between technique and creativity takes flight. The performers thwart gravity and defy borders with movements both poetic and primal, set to an atmospheric original soundtrack that incorporates electronica, spoken word and trance guitar.
