Finaleee! Egocentrix Trailer

Finaly done… The Egocentrix Trailer

httpvh://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cUdzwCdzvEU

Der Choreograf Johnny Lloyd hat für EGOCENTRIX über mehrere Wochen intensiv mit den 20 besten Teilnehmern der HipHop Academy Hamburg zusammen gearbeitet. Das Ergebnis vereint Rap, Breakdance, Graffiti, DJing und viel mehr in ungewohntem Kontext. Denn EGOCENTRIX ist kein HipHop-Stück – es ist Tanztheater. Gutes Tanztheater, das die Kunst im HipHop beleuchtet; abstrakt aber zugänglich, frei von Klischees und absehbaren Mustern.

Abject Art II

The term abjection literally means “the state of being cast off”. In usage it has connotations of degradation, baseness and meanness of spirit; but has been explored in post-structuralism as that which inherently disturbs conventional identity and cultural concepts.” (Wikipedia)
