Circusartiesten verrassen je keer op keer met hun virtuositeit, creativiteit, lenigheid en evenwichtskunsten. Maar breakdancers, freerunners en skateboarders doen dat ook!
Tijdens Festival Circolo lanceerden Factorium, Festival Circolo en Fontys Academy for Circus and Performance Art URBAN CIRCUS. Een nieuwe kruisbestuiving tussen circusartiesten en de urban scene.
Deze productie kwam tot stand i.s.m. Leanne Carlisle van Downtown Promotions en Dewi van Maaren van Dukebox. We stellen onze urban circus performers graag aan jullie voor!
Dewi is originally an house dancer. In 2013 she graduated at the Urban Dance Academy and fell in love with house music and dance. She was eduacated in all different urban styles but developed herself as an house dancer. She gave many dance classes, participated in dance battles and performed on different stages. In her hometown Den Bosch is a breaking crew called 'Cypher Active'. Together with this crew she grew up and they became her family. All together they went to different battles, events and did shows.
In 2017 Dewi graduated her Bachelor Sport Science. During this study she developed different organisations:
- NBL (Dutch Breaking League)
