Roots & Routes offers professional hip-hop talent the opportunity to develop their artistic ambitions and let their voice be heard through dance, music, and spoken word. They have helped a new generation of creatives with widely varying styles to storm the theatres. For Mind Ur Step, they entered into an international partnership with bridge-builders from the urban dance scene in Belgium, Germany, and France. Led by the famous Kader Attou and Nabil Oelhadj from France, and the Dutch pioneer Lloyd Marengo, eleven dancers present an ode to hip-hop in its purest form. Together they delve into the origins of hip-hop and connect past and future of this art form in ascension in an energetic performance. Universal, personal, powerful, and tenderly, they reach the essence.
