Urban Dance Platform

STUK i.s.m. Straatrijk

Urban and contemporary dance increasingly meet despite the many barriers between them. We usually associate urban dance with the battle and competition circuit, but an upcoming generation of urban dancers are choreographing performances that challenge the constraints of urban and contemporary dance. Together with  Straatrijk, which has invested in this scene for years, STUK wants to offer more visibility to this work. STUK invites Straatrijk on October 14th for a day full of workshops, a work in progress platform, and the fourth edition of DansBAar


WORK IN PROGRESS
Straatrijk
16:00 - 18:00
STUK Soetezaal

Straatrijk considers urban culture to be a fully-fledged art form and focuses on urban dance. They have an original approach to events, workshops and training and recently they even resorted to artistic creation. For this event, Straatrijk selects five promising choreographers and collectives from their international network. Instead of finished performances, expect exciting works in progress full of potential by artists developing their own voice through hip hop, theatre, and contemporary dance.

With work by Duarte Valadares & Jonas Verwerft, Dope Collective, Sarah Hadadia, Tamara Arruti, and Stijn Luyten. Discover the full programme here


DANSBAAR vol. IV

Straatrijk & STUKcafé
20:00
STUKcafé

DansBAaR is a unique dance and party concept. Trio's of different dance styles compete with each other in an original 3on3 battle. Battle-experienced breakdancers share the floor with dancers trained in various styles such as ballet, modern, twerking, tap dance, new style hiphop... It produces surprising confrontations and cross pollinations, but above all it is an evening of dancing pleasure.
