Summer Dance Forever
State Shift by The Ruggeds
Adapt, improvise, overcome.
An evening about adaptability, with the solo Turns and the duet Waterbrothers.
Two pieces about going with the flow or swimming against the current.
Just as water changes shape, Lee Demierre and Roy Overdijk change their approach to the floor. In the duet Waterbrothers, they challenge each other in a stream of movements in which the younger brother sometimes rushes past the older one. The brothers accompany you in a sea of movement, power, elegance and peace.
The solo Turns is about the turning points in the life of Virgil 'Skychief' Dey. His freedom of movement takes you through the story of a boy from the suburbs who - despite all the setbacks - always remained positive and translated his urge to survive into the purest form of communication: dance.
Nedda Sou: Bloom
BLOOM is about breaking stigmas and celebrating collective authenticity: for the culture, by the culture. The dance style is Krump. A powerful dance form/subculture that has its roots in the suburbs of LA and arose from the resistance to violence and the need to ensure safety in the black community.
With dancers: Virgil Ciano, BrandonBrood, Jordy Joia, Nakisa Brown
