Over the course of the last two decades Bruno Beltrão has revolutionized Hip Hop by interweaving styles and postures of Urban Dance with contemporary dance principles. His choreographies, with Grupo de Rua, are characterized by a physical vehemence and an analytical understanding of music and space. The company’s pulsing energy and high virtuosity have cast a spell over audiences worldwide. But how to stay in movement, when the current political and social situation in one’s country appears to paralyze everything; when hounding and hatred seem to disunite, split and suffocate freedom and solidarity, equality and democracy? With his new creation, Beltrão is reflecting on and protesting against the radical shift to the right and the newly sprouted fascist movements in Brazil and elsewhere. His previous performance Inoah, presented at Kunstenfestivaldesarts 2018, already seemed to predict this societal shift. The movement material negotiated indissoluble conflicts and violent social contradictions in a nearly pleading manner; as an urban battle between solidarity and excess. Now he returns to the festival with his new creation to make a vibrant statement about the necessity of resistance and movement in a society in the grip of conservative forces.
