There are only 8 dancers selected through preliminaries. Two dancers will go in position across from each other to battle, and the other 6 will form a line. The winning dancer will remain in place, and the next dancer in line will come to battle them. In order to win a 7-to-smoke, one dancer must be the first to win 7 rounds. **moment(urb)an: Waacking As a member of nutrospektif, a theater collective from Germany, we try to bring urban dance on theater stage, by using different concept Events. One of these Events is called "moment(urb)an". The idea to experiment with different tasks and create a very special and unique moment of telling a story and dealing with the tasks. Also, every Round has another Focus. To make it easy to understand, here is the concept for this Waacking Edition: There are dancers selected through preliminaries. After the First Round, the Judges have to choose 8 Dancers for the 2. and 3. Rounds. In the End the Judges will choose the dancer who dealed the best with all the 3 Rounds. 1. Round: Music Each Dancer gets a Soloperformance of 60 sek. with the challenge of different music genres. Its can be everything. 2.Round: Master the Object/ Task Each Dancer gets a Object Or a Task to work within 90 sek of a Soloperformance. Music can be everything. 3. Round: Connection The Dancers get to choose a partner and have a 2 min performance together without preparation. Music can be everything. MORE INFOS COMING SOON!
