Production Details / Press Releases

Our body speaks about our history, our roots, our way of living. Five dancers from France and Germany and four dance styles meet on stage. With the rage of Krump, the acrobatics of Break, the permeability of Release dance and the communicability of Contact dance, Krump ‘N’ Break Release dives into the biographies of each dancer. The dancers revisit their history and the way they relate to their movements while forming their new dance with humor, openness and courage.
