Kilometrix.dancerun.4


Kilometrix is a danced run or a raced dance – a hybrid performance between dance and running. It is part of a series of research on the similarities between dance and sport.

Foofwa takes a tour through your city, asking you to see it in a new way.
He engages in a long-distance, athletic and jovial choreography, and invites spectators to follow the performance, and get moving in an environmentally friendly way: on foot, by bike, or on rollerblades.

Foofwa covers from five to fifteen kilometers, cracks jokes, performs feats of extraordinary physicality, and engages the audience, passing drivers in their cars, pedestrians, etc. with wit and charm.

The performance is filmed by Pascal Dupoy (on rollerblades), and at the end of the “dancerun” a second performance takes place – the showing and discussion of the newly-made video.
