cone Krump piece from 11 years

Can one rebel with dance? Born in the black community of L.A., Krump dance style is the embodiment of social inequality, a vibrant form of expression that is raw and energetic, a creative outlet for aggression that lets the wounds of exclusion and racism speak for themselves.

French choreographer and Krump world champion Grichka Caruge brings dance created on the street to the stage and shows that Krump is a plea to constantly renegotiate human togetherness: Struggle, anger or pain are closely connected with the possibility of developing community, empathy and cohesion.

A production of TANZKOMPLIZEN as part of the Offensive Tanz für junges Publikum Berlin, in cooperation with Cie Art-Track (F) and PURPLE-International Dance Festival for Young Audiences. With the kind support of the Institut français and the French Ministry of Culture/DGCA.
