WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
The performers hurtle around the stage, things fall apart, atoms decay and relationships break up - below the surface is chaos, yet with enough distance anything can be beautiful. Part riot grrrl pop song, part circus spectacle, The Bekkrell Effect is an exhilarating visual feast combining the power of punk with risk and flare. Inspired by physicist Henri Becquerel's discovery of radioactivity, French company Groupe Bekkrell have created an unstable universe of perpetual movement where matter decays and bonds disintegrate. Powered by the strength of its performers and driven with the momentum of a gig at the end of the world, it is at once comic and revealing.
