Folia is an encounter between Baroque music, Italian tarantella, hip-hop and Mourad Merzouki's choreography. A show of timeless splendour, rare poetry and a celebration of sharing.
By bringing together the baroque music of the Concert de l'Hostel Dieu, electronic music and hip-hop, and adding a hint of Spain or Italy plus a whirling dervish, Mourad Merzouki is doing more than staging a choreographic show. His aim is to create the spark of a meeting between the arts, cultures and eras, capable of igniting imaginations. He wants to dream of a form of universal beauty where bodies dance to the rhythm of the dance of the worlds. Folia is a boudoir of learned music, an open window on the universe, a game and a popular festival; Folia celebrates the madness that lies at the heart of every creative act, and invites lyricism, fury and seduction.
