Compagnie Kafig 

Hip-hop blends many traditions and styles, combining hypnotic rhythms and smart lyrics with the innovative dynamism of b-boy dance moves. Compagnie Kafig takes this iconic genre several steps further, adding in samba, bossa nova and electronic music. With additional nods to Bollywood and Russian dance, Compagnie Kafig gives a hip-hop performance unlike any you've ever seen. Troupe founder Mourad Merzouki, a native of Lyon, France, brings his martial-arts and circus-arts background along, too. The result: a Dance St. Louis show filled with remarkable choreography and damn-near-electric energy.
