Who owns the stage? Four krump dancers pose this question and take the audience with them into the spotlight. Krump is a dance style that emerged on the streets of Los Angeles as insurgency against social inequality and discrimination. To this day, krump remains a safe haven and substitute family for many dancers. The krump communion creates community; this is about showing oneself, and about supporting each other. This self-empowering attitude to life, typical for krumping, will be transferred to the theatre space by choreographer Janne Gregor. Collaborating with four krump dancers and one musician, her production will break up the usual hierarchy between audience and performers. A vivid, participatory choreography will be created in an exchange with the audience, live, and on-site. Dance will become a means of communication; each individual performance will be a unique experience that illuminates why you just cannot stop dancing..
