The 6th Element creatively explores the consequences of our planet’s global warming.
Featuring Igokat’s original choreography, outstanding imagery of the WWF,
costumes by the Ecole de Couture de Lausanne
and lighting by Denis Foucart,
The 6th Element takes us on a journey that explores
the current health of our planet and the devastating impacts of climate change.
Between the elements there is harmony, complicity and a total balance.
Air, Earth, Fire and Water – four unique and complimentary components.
Since the beginning of time, many things have changed…man has indulged in all of his desires for his “evolution”,
to the destruction of everything around him.
The planet is damaged and the elements are out of control,
a fragile balance where only the 5th element, Love is a reality.
However, Love is not enough to save the planet because the materialism
and egoism of man is without limits.
A last hope, a last ray of light, a last chance: The 6th Element….Dance!
