New Creation

Bruno Beltrão / Grupo de Rua
' The virtuoso hiphop maker’s response to the political situation in Brazil '

The worldwide renowned Brazilian choreographer Bruno Beltrão revolutionised the dance world with his mix of hiphop and contemporary dance. His high-energy shows are physically intense and make excellent use of music and space. In New Creation Bruno and his twelve dancers respond to the far-right practices and barbarity of the Bolsonaro administration in Brazil. How to keep moving when the political and social situation in your native country seems to paralyze everything like a toxic fog? With fast moves, high jumps, head-spins and somersaults, the group showcases dance as a resistance movement. Spectacular, confronting and uncompromising.

"Once again Bruno Beltrão is highlighting the political dimension of dance. He transfers the resistance and protest movement from the streets of Brazil to the theatre stage, without losing any of its radical sound and feel." - Grzegorz Reske, artistic director SPRING
