Melting Pot

Coproduction 2021

Melting Pot is a dance practice developed by the Italian maker Marco Torrice. Dancers with different cultural backgrounds and styles meet on the dance floor and enter into dialogue. Through movement they tell a story in which they express, share and give a place to their deepest emotions.

Marco Torrice - Melting Pot 16:9

Torrice creates and redefines the concept of 'contemporary dance'. His project is more than a performance but ecstatic experience in which the artists involved throw a part of themselves into the Melting Pot and create new life together. Different dance styles such as hip hop freestyle, krump, vogueing, ... come together in a show between performance and party!

In 2020 Torrice challenges the principle of Melting Pot by opening the dialogue to other art sectors. Together with Jorge Guevara Enrique Larrotta, Thomas Turine and Ndiaga Diaw, he builds a bridge between the performing arts, music, light/video and fashion.

By allowing new art forms to collaborate with each other, Torrice wants to further develop and strengthen his current dance practice and its perception. And all this during a dazzling dance performance you can't look away from!
