Karrasekare by Igor x Moreno lands at The Place

The internationally acclaimed artistic duo Igor x Moreno, creators of BEAT, Idiot-Syncrasy and A Room For All Our Tomorrows present Karrasekare at The Place, Friday 10th & Saturday 11th of May.

Karrasekare, the Sardinian word for Carnival, is inspired by pagan carnival traditions from Sardinia and the Basque Country. Raw and surprising, sweaty yet elegant, it explores the catharsis of communal rituals and traditions.

This dynamic performance takes us on a journey back to the roots of traditional rhythms that have been accompanying our dances for centuries. Karrasekare takes those rhythms and uses them to create something truly unique and fluid, unearthing the queer in pagan rituals that take place in the streets and squares, and reimagining them inside a black box.

By challenging any sense of prudishness, Karrasekare captures the sense of chaos, community and catharsis experienced at folk festivals.

Igor x Moreno is the name under which the works created by choreographers Igor Urzelai Hernando and Moreno Solinas – in collaboration with an extended group of artists – are presented.

Igor x Moreno’s works stem from a fascination for people and what makes us such special animals. They use choreography and mostly non-verbal languages to create experiences which can surprise, energise and unsettle. Their works – highly constructed whilst deeply concerned with liveness – visit and escape different genres and styles.

Igor x Moreno’s creative processes favour questions over answers, action over narration, communication over expression, alterity over diversity, patience over productivity. They don’t see entertainment as their duty, but as a useful communication tool. They work with rigour and playfulness. They value pointlessness.
