Duration 15’

Kobra is an anagram for Barok. It plays with the image of the snake and its symbolic power, here evoked in the vision by a mimic metamorphosis. The performance physically gathers people in front of an effective union of three elements: a musician, a dancer and the snake. The musical and choreographic language proceed in a homorhythmic way absorbed in a psychedelic and primitive force. The drumbeat draws the volume of the body as the center of gravity of ventral and spiral contractions. Eyes wide open, lips movements: the soul is exalted and athletics becomes legendary. Presented at festivals' opening and music clubs. Kobra is a "cameo" taken from Indigenous.
