In 2014, the Rotterdams Philharmonisch Orkest and Maas Theater En Dans created a unique crossover in which breakdance and classical music found each other. In the years that followed, the successful performance was restaged. Today, director Jolanda Spoel has created a new version for a national tour, with new dancers, new musicians and a new set list of classical and modern music. New & improved! The remaining constant is the unique mix concept that guarantees an electrifying chemistry between musicians and dancers.
