DANS-N-WEST – B I R D S
OnPoint is a hip-hop group from Amsterdam with six professional dancers. They like to work with different choreographers. This time the turn to Kadir ‘Amigo’ Memis. He is an experienced hip-hop choreographer, born in Turkey and living in Berlin. As no other experiments Amigo with connecting different art forms, such as hip hop with Turkish folk dance or new jazz. Together with three dancers from Istanbul this motley crew creates a brand new piece for Dance-’n-West. And as a bonus a short work of Amigo himself. Credits
