electronic dance

As the Slate dancer explained after the show, electronic dance started in the 2000s at clubs in the southern suburbs of Paris. This dance is characterized by circular and circular movements of the body, especially the arm movements which are performed in an energetic, even frenetic manner. That electronic dance has evolved steadily since its inception and lives on by release, between explosion and precision.

Choreographer Blanca Li

Blanca Li is a choreographer, dancer, director and interactive exhibition director. Be it shows, operas, music videos or films, he is behind a huge number of projects: “I like to achieve whatever is in my mind“, he said. With Blanca Liit all begins and ends with the energy of movement and dance.

Blanca Li has directed the Teatros del Canal in Madrid since November 2019. She was elected to the Academy of Fine Arts on 24 April 2019, in the choreography section.

Born in Granada, Blanca Li became a member of the Spanish national rhythmic gymnastics team at the age of 12. At the age of 17, he moved to New York, where he studied for five years with Martha Graham and at other schools, including Alvin Ailey, Paul Sanasardo and Clark Center. Living in Spain’s Harlem, he is a direct witness to the hip-hop boom that emerges every day and at the same time created the flamenco rap group las Xoxones. Upon his return to Spain, he founded his first contemporary dance company in Madrid, selected for the Universal Exhibition program in Seville.

In 2010, when I met these few passionate high school students, excited by the dance they created, I knew right away that it was the start of a great story.

Since the beginning of the adventure, the dancers have grown up, some opening up to other dance styles, others turning to fashion or music… Electro has become a real culture, full of various influences. .

With Electro Kif, in the creation of the then tour, I had the opportunity to witness their evolution over the course of four years. Making my film Electro Mathematrix is ​​another step towards the Electric show. The photoshoot allowed me to rediscover the dancers five years after the creation of Elektro Kif and to gauge the incredible evolution of their dance.

Electro has maintained its immense power, its vibrant positive energy, while enriching its language and spectrum of possibilities… Electro today is unbearable.
