'Mind Ur Step' is an initiative of ROOTS & ROUTES Netherlands in co-production with Maas theater en dans (NL), Koninklijk Vlaams Schouwburg (BE), Racines Carrees (FR) and ROOTS & ROUTES Cologne (DE). We have set up a coaching program for 11 professional urban dancers who have been around for a while and are ready for the next step in their career. They will be coached and skilled by experts to evolve from performers to choreographers. Under the artistic direction of Nabil Ouelhadj, Lloyd Marengo and Kader Attou the dancers work on an urban dance production that will tour through Europe after the Premiere during Shake Festival (nov 2018) in Kader Attou’s homebase, CCN in La Rochelle (FR) .
