Marching & Breakin’

Crossover between Percussion & Breakdance

Services: Concept Development, Production
Premiere: 9 November 2018
On Tour: September 2019

Brief

One night that challenges the cross-over between classical music and urban street culture. Dutch percussion virtuoso Dominique Vleeshouwers and international percussion soloist Emil Kuyumcuyan team up with Eindhoven’s renowned breakdance crew The Ruggeds and the winner of the European Championship for wind orchestras St. Michaël of Thorn. Together they create a performance where breakdance turns into ballet, a traditional Dutch wind band is transformed into a hip hop orchestra and intimate classical percussion gradually evolves into energetic beats.
