Thu 14 Nov ’1920:30 - 21:40Philipszaal
Five virtuoso dancers explore their physical limits and go to the extreme. They analyze battle codes, share their injuries and suffering, and openly communicate about the unending training and rivalry. They’re also not afraid to give their unfiltered opinions about each other's skills and fails. An explosive performance with and about break dancers in which film and theater, and real life and fiction merge seamlessly. In every city, the crew will be surprised with a guest appearance.
Vitoria visits B-Boy
Vitoria visited B-Boy in Rotterdam. "B-Boy is a performance that fits Eindhoven’s urban vibe, it relates directly with a style of life that we see on the streets, during art festivals and dance events. It opens up the dance world to other perspectives that sometimes we are not used to see in theatre productions, it gives us a great energy and good vibes after the show".

Director Jolanda Spoel about B-BOY:
"B-BOY is an ode to break dancers. As a theater maker, however, I would not only like to highlight the acrobatic virtuosity of breakdance, but also its narrative power, which is much greater than is commonly thought. I'm looking for parallels between the world of battles and real life."
“Director Jolanda Spoel has created a clearly structured show that leaves plenty of room for the five breakers to showcase their strengths and share their life stories.” Movement Exposed
