Hip Hop Goes Theatre
Salzburg isn’t just the city of Mozart, it is also a pulsating stage for street dance and hip-hop. In autumn especially, various festivals take place that are focused on modern dance.
The dance-theater festival “Hip-Hop Goes Theatre” is a unique crossover project that brings a young, powerful cultural movement to classical theatre stages. It was born in 2008, though even back then its three sold-out performances were clearly a huge hit with the public. Since 2012, the festival has been held every year at the Szene Salzburg and has featured around five different companies. Performances last anywhere between 90 and 120 minutes.
Courageous crossover from around the world
This festival sees itself as much more than just an evening out at the theater. It represents the creative energy of young urban culture, promotes performers who are actively involved in the local scene and presents international acts from the worlds of hip-hop and dance theater.
