From the show
They are young, beautiful, funny ... But everything opposes them. Two planets so far away from each other… Her moves are gentle and with real finesse, he is energetic and skilful.
Mixing storytelling, hip hop, classical and contemporary dance, two dancers from different worlds search for ways to understand each other in a humorous game of cat and mouse.
Sharing four cultures between them, Shihya Peng (born in Taiwan and living in Paris) and Marco Di Nardo (born in Naples and living in Berlin) invite young audiences into their story as they find common ground and ways of communicating. With each move, jump or chase, they seek to find a country to live in together, and to live in with others.
Speaking to the young - and the not so young - W.A.M. playfully explores the search for harmony in today’s multicultural world.
