France’s fusion hip-hop company Käfig makes an immediate impact. Artistic Director and choreographer Mourad Merzouki mixes complex hip-hop, capoeira, samba, and acrobatics with high-energy electronic music and bossa nova, developing a program of two distinct, yet complimentary works — Correria (running) and Agwa (water).
