New tap dance production premiers

24. October 2017

Stepptanz Company LeipzigReady, go! We are diving into the final rehearsals for CABOOM, the new production of the Sebastian Weber Dance Company!

CABOOM connects the musical punch of tap with the visual power of contemporary dance: a pulsating, passionate, rough piece about chaos in life and society.

Chaos is, when situations become unpredictable. When levees break and plans fail, when everything happens at once or all turns out different than expected. Chaos makes individuals and whole societies stumble.

CABOOM celebrates the creative potential of chaos in a multilayered composition for five dancers. The dates are:

10.11.17 Ludwigstheater Aschaffenburg
