“A choreography by Macras is finished when the stage lies in ruins at the end.” (DIE ZEIT)
Argentine-born Constanza Macras devises choreographies that have been described as energetic, powerful, wild and colourful but they are also serious commentaries on topics critical of society. In Distortion, Constanza Macras takes the basic moves of hip hop and deforms them to make expressive imagery in a contemporary choreography. Together with eight performers from the HipHop Academy Hamburg, she sounds out the possibilities of what can be physically portrayed, making the dancing bodies into a vehicle for a visually stunning narrative.
