In the new theater performance Rhythm & Flow by ISH Dance Collective, musicians, freerunners and hip-hop dancers gather round the edges of the stage. What happens when the rhythms of these different disciplines merge or clash?
A dancer challenges a musician, they turn up the beat and feel the adrenaline pumping. They throw themselves into each other's flow full of surrender. Feel your heart rate rise with spectacular choreography against a vertical wall, power moves on a transparent floor and rousing live music. Feel the rhythm and surrender to the moment.
No flow without rhythm Music, hip-hop, breaking and freestyling: each discipline has its own cadence. In the robust performance Rhythm & Flow, choreographer Marco Gerris allows disciplines to merge and diverge again. In a stream of energy, the performers allow themselves to be carried away by the beat and play with light and space. They move with each other and come to a perfect synergy, creating a new rhythm. This breathtaking show will keep you on the edge of your seat.
ISH Dance Collective Choreographer, artistic director and founder Marco Gerris has been successfully finding his way off the beaten track for more than twenty years. Inspired by street culture, ISH brings hip-hop dance and urban sports to the theater. United by the realization that boundaries do not exist, ISH makes dance from elements that you would not immediately label as dance. Freedom of movement arises when you let go of the structures: the connecting force of an open mind.
