Renegade Theatre presents ‘Rumble’

January 26th, 2006

Check this out! As the breaking scene in Germany explodes. the Internationally renowned Hip Hop company Renegade Theatre hits the UK with their award-winning production 'Rumble'. Inspired by Shakespeare's tragic love story Romeo and Juliet, this explosive production has packed out venues world-wide and is the brainchild of producer Zekai Fenerci, one of Germany's most influential players within their sizeable Hip Hop scene and directors/choreographers Markus Michalowski and Lorca Renoux. This trio have created a winning formula of whirlwind moves, street-derived drama and powerful, physical storytelling. The classic story of the vendetta between the Montagues and Capulets is atmospherically transformed into modern day gangland turf-war with its rival breakdance crews going up against each other with some serious stunts and humour on a set of graffiti'd street corners. Rumble's international cast of nine dancers are accompanied by a score compiled by Alexandru Catona, featuring beatboxing, sampling, saxophone, drums and cello. One to watch!

Rumble has its London debut on 2 and 3 February 2006 at the Queen Elizabeth Hall and then embarks on an extensive nation-wide tour. Below are the tour dates for the rest of Feb and check their website for more tour dates. www.rumbletour.co.uk
