A co-production by Kukai Dantza and Brodas Bros
Four young people meet in a square somewhere. Music plays and the young people set out dancing. Some are trained traditional Basque dancers; others, hip-hop dancers. The street –the space where they live– brings them together. BRODAS BROS & KUKAI DANTZA present TOPA – Nuevo Street Show.

“Traditional dance and urban culture share the street as a natural space for expression. The plasticity, musicality, physicality… of their performances make the two disciplines rich and adaptable to a context in which both social traditions meet with a shared language. As a choreographer it is a very attractive challenge to work on this experience that combines traditional Basque dance and dance with an urban tradition”.
