H3 - NEW PIECE
Hip hop expedition into the unknown: sensual, forceful, fragile
The stage in “H³”, which recently debuted three years after “H²”, is black instead of white. The music consists of street noise and sound compositions which have absolutely nothing to do with hip-hop. Bruno Beltrão’s solos, duets and group choreography represent an even greater departure from hip-hop (but his signature movements are still clearly visible). Instead of focusing on the rules of the street, he grapples with the rules of space, of three-dimensional and physical perception. His dancers use their movements to explore the room – forcing each other to lose their balance by jumping on, shoving and colliding with each other. Or they snuggle up to each other, sending ripples through their bodies like electric shocks. “H³” is a wondrous and poetic “expedition into unknown territory” – which makes it incredibly exciting.
