Tour of Duty  creation

For the first time at the Théâtre de la Ville


"3rd PRIZE" DANCE AT ITS BROADEST 2010


HIP-HOP AT ITS BROADEST


After having won the 3rd prize in the Dance at its Broadest 2010 contest with Insolents Solistes [Insolent Soloists]l, the Nantes based collective KLP is back at the Théâtre de la Ville with a creation inspired by Brooklyn in the 60ies, at the time of West Side Story. Yet Tour of Duty doesn’t so much depict the gangs’ and vying hostility as the places of the different communities’ daily gatherings and parties.
We are inside the HQ of a gang, the Savage Skulls, back from a night out in a space both vertical with scaffoldings and horizontal with fall absorbing thick mattresses. Weariness, exhaustion and lassitude generate a lithe dance in which movement circulates from one body to another like the beer cans passing from hand to hand. Whether in twosomes or threesomes or sometimes in solos, KLP highlights the passage of break dance from the street to the stage. They exploit that transition to compose a fluidly progressing choreography. Above all the collective favours the hiphop culture as the frame and basis for modes of expression in which in both music and dance, Afro- and Latin-American cultures rub shoulders.
