WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
A new hip-hop dance theatre show. A UK premiere by Pierre Rigal, one of the most exciting choreographers working in Europe. Pierre Rigal has presented his work across the world including acclaimed shows at London's Breakin' Convention at Sadler's Wells, The Gate Theatre, Baryshnikov Arts Centre in New York and Sydney Opera House. In this performance Rigal has created a compelling dance-theatre experience, driven by the intense energy of his brilliant young hip-hop dancers and a new soundtrack from Nihil Bordures. Performing on a stage bathed in the red, white and blue of the French flag, like urban warriors, eight dancers, krump, lock, pop and break, exploring the many meanings of this powerful symbol of identity and how a person can remain individual in a society that asks us to confirm.
