H3


by Bruno Beltrão / Grupo de Rua

In Bruno Beltrão’s “H3”, nine dancers  tackle the limits of their coordination and skill as they collide and balance against each other, blending elements of krumping, popping and breakdance in their duets. The black mirrored stage is wired to pick up the screech and slide of the dancers' shoes.  The simple stage set includes not much more than lighting to add subtle nuances to the dancers’movements against the acoustic back- drop of environmental noises and silence replacing the original hip hop and R&B music. The additional sounds of the dancers add to an atmosphere that is pregnant with a sense of tension that both street and theatre settings share.
