Moving Futures Festival Amsterdam / Leila Ka

Theater Bellevue, Amsterdam, The Netherlands | Moving Futures festival

Wednesday 22 May, 2019

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.

In 2019 the innovative dance festival Moving Futures travels for the fifth time along different cities in the Netherlands. An international guest program will be organized by Dansmakers Amsterdam from 22-25 May 2019 in Amsterdam. The most signifgicant works of five national production houses are merged together in one traveling festival. In an equally refreshing as diverse program, a wayward generation starting and more advanced dance and performance artists are passing by. They shine just as brightly on stage as in the cinema and in the middle of the shopping street - no dance thresholds!. With the side program of open studios, after-talks, proffessionals meetings and network receptions; Moving Futures puts your nose on top. From musical duet to contemporary hip-hop and immersive multi-disciplinary performance: see how a new generation dance artists are stretching the limits of dance effortlessly.

Moving Futures is a collaboartion between Dansmakers Amsterdam, Dansateliers, DansBrabant, De Nieuwe Oost and Random Collision.
