Meet Lloyd Marengo
Lloyd Marengo grew up in Rotterdam in the 1980s and learned to dance on the street. In the 1990s, his hangout in Rotterdam West, Twilight, became the epicenter of hip-hop. Lloyd stepped up his game with 010 B-boys, who achieved worldwide success and put Rotterdam hip-hop and street culture on the map. Lloyd is one of the founders of the Hiphophuis, where he has worked with Scapino and Conny Janssen Danst, among others. His work has been shown during the Nederlandse Dansdagen and in the Royal Theater Carré (Amsterdam). In 2019, this pioneer started his own company: Lloydscompany. Here, dancers, upcoming urban makers and the underground battle scene come together. With performances for theaters and festivals, Lloydscompany bridges the gap between the street and the stage.
