Choreographers Elisabeth Borgermans and Thomas Vantuycom take Stravinsky's masterpiece Petrouchka as a source of inspiration for a new dance creation with nine young people between the ages of 15 and 24. The starting point is not the original ballet version from 1911, but a search for the unexplored worlds in music. Stravinsky's composition is full of contrasts: without transition you go from one atmosphere to another. This directness is typical of modern man at the beginning of the last century, when electricity and machines changed the urban landscape and energised life in every sense. Electric Life finds out what place our body still has in our digitised life.
