Urban Moves er en stor, internasjonal festival som inneholder alt fra jams og battles til fantastiske forestillinger fra inn-og utland.
Urban Moves is a major international festival containing everything from jams and battles to incredible performances by Norwegian and international artists.
This year’s main attraction is ILL-abilities, a crew that has enjoyed global success with its productions. The five dancers all have challenges relating to movement and physique, but have overcome these to become an incredibly talented crew who communicate hope, inspiration, determination and the sheer joy of dance. They will be presenting their production No Limits, which is a journey through the dancers’ struggles against opposition, stereotypes, doubt and uncertainty. Through choreographic challenges, the crew discover their own strengths – together. The five dancers come from the Netherlands, Chile, USA and Canada.
Another highlight on the festival is the chanse tothe British artist Botios Seva, who runs the company Far From The Norm. They will be presenting the production Rec, which is a mix of hip hop, contemporary dance and theatre that transcends all boundaries. It will drag us out of our comfort zone and into a landscape where four muscular dancers create a tribal community. They will guide us through their world, although they will also confuse us.
As well as these productions, there will also be battles on Saturday evening and Sunday. Keep up-to-date with what’s happening here and on Facebook!
