In Pode Ser Leïla Ka combines theatre, hip-hop, and contemporary dance. In a solo boxing match about borders, aspirations, and chaos, she researches the relations between the individual and the world.
The Portuguese expression “pode ser” can be translated as “it could be” or “perhaps, perhaps not”. This ambiguity is expressed clearly in the combination of the different dance styles displayed in the solo and becomes all the more powerful through the sincerity of movements and Leïla’s intriguing stage presence.
Pode Ser is Leïla’s first solo work and has already won several prices in her home country France. The work was also on the shortlist for the Aerowaves Top Twenty 2019.
