The rhythm is a beating heart. A cadence, to set us in motion, a shared beat, a shared heart. A body ticking, a mouth gasping, a belly bulging, a foot stepping. All is music and all is in dialogue between a dancer and a musician. Do-re-mi-ka-do. Cadeau? Does that mean present? Is there a present inside the box? Sound becomes colour, dance turns into music, and the world grows into a colourful adventure. Let’s make it a party.
