Street Dancers of Novi Sad (Novi Sad/Serbia)
The concept that the Street Dancers of Novi Sad will present at this year’s Gradić Fest is an unusual street dance performance according to the principles of modern theatre of movement, in which music has the role of just an accompanying element. The focus of the twenty-member dance troupe will be acting, which will be accompanied by a mix of soft music in the background.
The members of the troupe are dancers from a few different dance associations from Novi Sad and Belgrade, such as Groove and Urban Dance Studio, whose cooperation started with a dance education project by French dancer Sabrie from “Kafiq” dance troupe, which was organized by the French Institute in Serbia, with centers in Belgrade, Novi Sad and Niš. In order to share what they have learned, the dancers have come up with a performance called “8”, within which they intend to portray the 8 basic human emotions. Their performance will take place after the opening ceremony of Gradić Fest, on Friday 1st September, at 11: 30 p.m., at the festival’s spot in Beogradska Street.
