Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui is celebrated as one of the most original and ambitious talents in contemporary dance today, garnering an international reputation for his “silky intermingling of hybrid movement forms and emotionally intense theater” (The New York Times). The Belgian dance artist performs with his company Eastman in Fractus V.

“A thrillingly expansive watch, large with possibilities and potent with ideas” (The Guardian), the work is an amalgamation of cultures featuring five male dancers with diverse movement backgrounds ranging from circus and Lindy-hop to flamenco and hip-hop, and musicians performing a varied composition with influences ranging from Korean, Indian, Congolese, and Japanese.

performances also at 2 pm on 7/14, 7/15
