ELEMENTS OF FREESTYLE


In this adrenaline-fuelled explosion of extreme urban sports, dance, music and theatre, ISH Dance Collective creates breathtaking poetry. Whether you float on ballet shoes or on skates, with ISH, it's all dance.

Elements of Freestyle is about those redeeming seconds that make a complicated trick ultimately succeed; about the freestylers' total focus on the moment, the ecstasy and the feeling of complete and total freedom.
-|-
In a spectacular fusion of breakdance, inline skating, skateboarding, freestyle basketball, BMX and freerunning, the audience discovers the artistry behind the trick. Simultaneously both exquisitely beautiful and heart-poundingly exciting, director Marco Gerris' show packs a punch. You simply will not believe your eyes.

IN THE PRESS

de Volkskrant

"Impressively pure…They are bounding with energy, which is only increased by that of the audience."

Musicalnieuws

"Sometimes it's just unbelievable. You have to experience this, experience it in full color, live and soaked in music."
