The street and the square as a meeting point for people and a space where the action takes place: la cuerda, soka, the rope… Sokadantza (rope dance) is one of the most deep-rooted dancing traditions in the Basque Country – a tradition that that reflects the joining together of society by dance. Soka recreates this concept via a contemporary view of things: it brings together the essence of this ancestral dance in order to approach it from a modern-day standpoint through the eyes of young contemporary creators.

This is a show that came into being following a meeting between dancers from the Kukai Dance Company and the choreographer, Pantxika Telleria. Five dancers and two percussionists star in this show, which pursues interesting work involving a search and encounter among its creators and performers. SOKA is the result of a piece that unfolds smoothly to a percussive rhythm.
