As part of Tanz im August

High jumps, headspins, somersaults, fast kicks and whirling turns: with his 10-person crew Grupo de Rua, Brazilian choreographer Bruno Beltrão combines breaking, hip hop and contemporary dance.

With a keen eye for composition, Beltrão addresses the turbulent political status of Brazil. In “New Creation” he brings his country’s urgent conflict and violent social contradictions to the stage through an athletic vocabulary of the urban, imbued with explosive expression and freewheeling virtuosity.
