nutrospektif are Bahar Gökten, Daniela Mba, Daniela Rodriguez Romero, Friederike Frost and Yeliz Pazar. The collective, founded in 2012 at tanzhaus nrw is dedicated to the examination of movement principles as well as to the cultural practice of urban dance cultures, among them hip hop, breaking, Popping, Locking or Waacking, transferring them into a contemporary, performative and theatrical context.
The dance artists* aim to provide urban dance with more visibility, from an artistic standpoint and from different perspectives, making it accessible for an outside experience. 2021 arose stage plays as part of STEP BY STEP, the Factory Artist's cooperation with the Ballett am Rhein, improvisational formats such as, most currently, moment(urb)an and IM FLAME – Flamenco meets urban dance , Urban Residencies, and most recently the MOVING CONCRETE for Urban Dance Art festival in September. This year, for Factory Finale, the collective celebrates its tenth anniversary with NUTRO 10 – eine nutrospective that offers audiences a reflexive and moving portrait inspired by the collective's history.
The interdisciplinary exchange is mirrored by several collaborations with a number of cultural and educational institutions, such as the Oper am Rhein, Museum für Angewandte Kunst (Museum of Applied Art/ MAKK) Cologne, Oper und Schauspiel (Opera and Theatre) Cologne, the Institute of Dance and Movement Culture at the German Sport University Cologne and Pottporus e.V. as well in their recurring co-operations with MichaelDouglas Kollektiv and ZAIK.
