Sokalo: Urban Rhythms captures the beat of a city through percussive step dancing

by on September 30, 2014


From percussion dance company [ZØGMA], Sokalo: Urban Rhythms is inspired by the heritage and cultural diversity of urban areas. Coming to the Fredericton Playhouse on Wednesday, October 15 at 7:30 p.m., this engaging piece will appeal to audiences of all ages.

Montreal-based [ZØGMA] has been performing on the national and international scene since 2001. The company is best known for merging dance, music and song into powerful rhythmic works, creating a new aesthetic of Quebec folklore.

Sokalo is an energetic and colourful show that incorporates the rhythm, images and characters of a city. The result is a performance that moves – both literally and figuratively.

Featuring lively music composed by Julien Roy, eight performers will offer a rhythmic experience that invites the audience to travel along with them. Sokalo is all about urban rhythms that imitate life.

In addition to the performance on October 15, the Playhouse is offering an Experience More! activity on our stage on Tuesday, October 14 from 6-7:30 p.m. During the Urban Style Step Dance Workshop, participants will learn the basics of percussive step dancing, which blends step dance and body percussion. Contact the box office to register and for more information.

Tickets for Sokalo: Urban Rhythms are available through the Fredericton Playhouse box office , or online at
