House dance, breakin’, and Krump are all styles of urban dance whose language of movement differ greatly from one another, yet their origins and impact share commonalities. All three styles are rooted in countercultures as strategies of self-empowerment against a system of patriarchal, capitalist and racist oppression.
Anja Jadryschnikova, Prince MIK Ofori and Raphael Moussa Hillebrand are each pioneers in their genre. To kick off Radialsystem’s new series “Encounters – Embodied Practices”, the three artists host a workshop that provides insight into their dance practices and various approaches to collaborative dance. Whether it’s the Cypher (circle), the Soul Train Line or an interactive video installation, the focus always remains on exchange and togetherness.
“#1 Urban Practices” is designed both for specialists and participants in the urban dance scene, as well as entirely new audiences. There is no age restriction; families with children are also welcome.
