Come On Feet grew out of the fascination of the brothers Bert and Stijn Cools (granvat) for electronic dance music (EDM). Footwork, a subgenre that arose from Chicago’s street culture, serves as the starting point and source of inspiration for the brothers’ soundtrack for Come on Feet. Through improvisations they dissect and rebuild the genre on synth guitar and electronic drum. Typically, intricate dance moves focusing on - yes, you guessed it - the feet, accompany the high-paced rhythms of the music. Five dancers, and choreographer Quan Bui Ngoc (Les Ballets C de la B), enter into dialogue with the live club music by the brothers, combining the power and improvisation of the footwork with the suppleness and techniques of contemporary dance. The first time that this underground battle dance will be kneaded into a dance performance!
