Armitage Gone! Dance - Italy

Summer of Love
Choreography Karole Armitage
Music Burkina Electric
Costumes Peter Speliopoulos

Armitage Gone! Dance, Lukas Ligeti and Burkina Electric join together for a Dionysian celebration in Summer of Love. Armitage’s mix of off-kilter ballet, club dance, and erotica ripple out in waves of fracturing crystalline motion. The music by Burkina Electric combines the burkinab√© music of Burkina Faso and Western club electronica. Costumes by Peter Speliopoulos take inspiration from the documentary photography of sixties youth culture by Malick Sidib√© in Mali and the hippie movement in the west.
