Floor on Fire is an interdisciplinary battle format designed by HELLERAU – Europäisches Zentrum der Künste Dresden in collaboration with the Dresden breakdance crew The Saxonz. It lives from the encounter of different dance styles and aesthetics, from the individuality of the dancers and their unlimited creativity. As in a classical urban battle, the dancers try to outdo their respective counterparts by performing their own performances. However, artists from different fields face each other here, from ballet, breakdance or contemporary. It is an encounter at eye level, they complement and contradict each other at the same time.

Without following a choreography, the dancers show the different facets of their art with a lot of fun and enthusiasm in short encounters. Dance battles originally come from urban breakdance and hip hop culture. In these battles, individual dancers or entire teams compete against each other.

Floor on Fire – Battle of Styles extends this principle to different dance styles and generations of dancers. It is about spontaneity and a creative approach to movement as a universal means of dance expression, about the possibility of encounter, communication and exchange. The different dance styles are judged by a jury on the basis of equal criteria (expression, quality of movement, humour, presence, musicality, etc.), which finally selects a winning team. The meeting of the different dance styles creates a new dynamic, at the same time breaking with clichés.

Floor On Fire has been regularly performed as a format in HELLERAU since 2015 and has become a well-known institution for dance enthusiasts of all ages, as well as for the participating artists who take valuable impulses for their own work from the encounters. The constants of the cast are a team of co-hosts, the breakdance crew The Saxonz, and a selection of Dresden’s contemporary dance scene.

In the meantime, Floor on Fire has also thrilled audiences at guest performances in Lyon, Prague, Paris and St. Pölten.

Advance booking 27.02. 3 p.m. Only online and via the VVK offices. No sale of tickets in the HELLERAU Visitor Centre.
