JOSE BERTOGAL AND MIKE LARIFLA [MOUNKA COMPANY]

Guadaloupe-based Performing artists

Project: Biosphere – Dance Piece

Period: October 2019

During their residency, the artists developed their show “Biosphere”, which was presented in the Caribbean as well as during the Tout-Monde Festival here in Miami, but is still in progress. This three act-saga composed of « The Alpha », « Sapiens » and « The Omega », unites four hip hop, break-dance, and contemporary dance performers who interpret the formation of the Earth and the evolution of life, with a music reproducing the sounds of volcanoes, rivers and the passing of time, created by José Bertogal.

AIR at The Light Box
