TOQUE
CONTEMPORARY DANCE SHOW
“Toque is a contemporary dance show that brings to stage the individual between the solitude, the encounter and otherness. The sensibility and contrasts of the body movement and the differences that touch each other. The touch of bodies, the drums and the audience.

Inspired by urban dance and using live body percussion music, the show unites three artist from different nationalities. Created and directed by Gustavo Gelmini, with Renato Cruz’s interpretation and choreography and Cyril Hernandez’s interpretation and music.
Toque had its European premiere at Le Centquatre-Paris and South American premier at Sesc Copacabana-Rio de Janeiro, with critical and audience acclaim and select between the specialized critic in Brazil, one of the best dance shows of 2017.
This show is co-produced by Gelmini, Hibrida and La Truc dance and art companies. All residents of Le Centquatre-Paris.”
