A wild journey that fuses hip hop and classical ballet in an urban nightclub setting.

From classical ballet to breakdancing and acrobatics, Roderick George drives the Berlin-based company through a careful balancing act of aggression and softness, stagnancy and virtuosic movement. Dust takes the audience on a wild journey as four male dancers transgress the traditional concert setting and dive head first into an urban nightclub through a combination of hip hop and classical ballet – all set to the music of DJ SAD.
