Bruno Beltrão / Grupo de Rua (BR)

CRACKz (Dança morta)

Tanz im August

With his Grupo de Rua founded in Niterói in 1996, Bruno Beltrão deconstructs hip hop dance, an urban form primarily based on individual virtuosity, in order to compose collective choreographies suited to the theatrical space. His new show “CRACKz” is dedicated to the processes of cultural dissemination, appropriation and modulation generated by information technologies. Without aesthetical presumptions, Beltrão has asked his dancers to select choreographic material found on the internet. Starting from this “repertoire of gestures created by mankind”, he has developed a piece without homeland, a nomadic experiment through movement.
