Cinco Cintas is an extension of Frédéric Gies’ solo Ribbon Dance, in which four other dancers (Philip Berlin, Louise Dahl, Samuel Draper and pavleheidler) join their forces to his in the shape of five simultaneous solos that answer and support each other to become a group dance, made of echoes, reverberations and unisons. Twirling and spiralling as much as the ribbons they hold in their hands, they surrender to the streams that generate movement. Bodies and ribbons become extensions of each other in a celebratory dance.
