OntheFloor is a new kind of live dance experience - the pilot project of The Dance Cartel, it's a fusion of the company's rigorous artistic approach with the vibrant social nature of dance. The premiere of The Dance Cartel's new repertory is supported by live musicians, video and DJ.
Choreographer Ani Taj Niemann draws on rhythmic influences from her recent research trip to Salvador da Bahia, Brazil. Points of departure include body rhythms like breathing or a heartbeat, to rhythms in speech and gesture, to the crucial place of rhythm in music itself from the baterias of Carnaval to the 808 in your favorite house and hip hop beats.
