In an electrically charged performance, ten dancers explore the boundaries between hip-hop, breakdance and contemporary dance. Against the backdrop of corrupt Brazilian street life, they unfurl a breathtaking composition. Initially hesitant, literally groping in the dark, the untenable tension then explodes in a storm of leaps, somersaults and headspins.
The work of Bruno Beltrão is one of the most refreshing choreographic experiences of the last decade. The Brazilian deconstructs the codes of hip-hop by mixing them with other movement languages. For INOAH, Beltrão once again brings the streets to the podium. Inspired by global mass migration, this performance is both an intelligent call for freedom of movement and a creative indictment against its restriction by closed borders.
