Power is a double bill where origins, power and creativity are highlighted from two perspectives. Lloyd Marengo, Maikel Walker and Bosila Banya (aka B-Boy Junior) are three key figures in breakdance. Worldwide, they are a great inspiration for many dancers. Junior is one of the most iconic characters in the breaking scene, known for his inhuman strength and handstand acrobatics. Maikel is a powerful dancer and even has moves named after him.
Moving away from the beaten track, the three dancers give new impulses to movement, hip-hop and dance in a typical and idiosyncratic way. In Power, Marengo, Walker and Banya look at their African roots and the influence it has on their dance, choreography and daily lives. They look back on their careers so far, their shared background, the differences, the similarities and the development of street.
