YOUNG HIPHOP ENSEMBLE


Who doesn't know the "Moonwalk" that made history as a trademark of Michael Jackson?! But what else does the dance step tell apart from Billie Jean, Thriller or Bad? About the perfect illusion of weightlessness - a walk on the moon.

In "Moonwalk", the five young dancers, together with choreographer Kenji Shinohe, deal with this phenomenon and break the dance step  on.  The ensemble deals with the topics of weightlessness and gravity, drawing on their personal backgrounds, perspectives and everyday experiences.

Choreography: Kenji Shinohe Assistance : Yurika Yamamoto Dance : Selina Mic, Melina Pacolli, Phoebe Rubin, Jolina Shala, Orim Tatari Light Design: Jens Piske Team: Ximena Ameri Cespedes, Zekai Fenerci Video: Leon Schirdewahn-Debring

YOUNG HIPHOP ENSEMBLE

Expedition Hip Hop - MY IDENTITY?

The Ruhr area is known for its strong hip-hop scene. But what exactly is hip hop? The expression of a certain attitude towards life? A mouthpiece for young people and young adults, especially for those with a “migrant background”? And who is even real? 7 young people between the ages of 12 and 18 have become acquainted with the urban dance scene of the Ruhr area and their idols  and developed their first full-length piece as a newly founded hip-hop ensemble.
