“It’s about culture shock and physical encounter,” announced festival director Sabine Gehm on Tuesday in Bremen. Choreographer Christian Ubl lets his performers in leather pants sound out the meaning of rituals and rebellion to the sound of drumbeats and cow bells. Israel Galván’s German premiere “FLA.CO.Men” features a dance concert with lightning fast flamenco, drums and saxophone.
