7 characters, different backgrounds and styles: a mixture of energies. One of the major Hungarian players in the underground street dance scene, Urban Dance Theatre comprises all the original old school and new school hip‐hop dance styles. Sticking to the originality of the styles from a contemporary perspective, they build up their performance based on acoustic and electronic music leaving room for improvisation. We are immersed into the world of underground urban dance culture, where dancers find inspiration in their differences and where they collaborate in mixing a variety of styles and personalities.
