After successfully collaborating with fABULEUS for GIRLS (2013), Ugo Dehaes works with a group of young people again in RATS. This time he opposes a couple of drones, an adult contemporary female dancer and seven young urban dancers. They twist around each other. They observe, copy and challenge each other. Solos and battles merge into group dances. Movements collide or go viral. Different worlds discover each other’s edges, from which a new dance language originates.
