Not Punk, Pololo



Gintersdorfer/Klaßen dedicate this evening to the legendary Ivory Coast gangster and fashion icon John Pololo. Now the Pololo movement, German punk and queer club cultures directly clash on stage. In fast-paced group choreographies and musical dance solos, street dance from Abidjan, twerking and voguing merge into a happening that teems with energy.   

Production: Gintersdorfer/Klaßen. In collaboration with Theater Bremen.
