Description

Super Human explores and pushes the limits of the human body. In a unique and mind-awakening performance the super physical team redefine the human being in new optimised versions. Both supernatural and superhuman behaviour is in the spotlight as the performance gathers inspiration from science-fiction movies, superheroes and real-life scientific experiments. The distinctive choreographic language of Next Zone and choreographer Lene Boel builds on explorations of mental states, translated into extreme physical movements in a fusion of urban dance, new composed music and scenography lights.

Super Human (****)
Hip hop and break dance performed by 5 guys and a girl. A real pleasure to watch

Fabian Galama 121 days ago

Super Human is a suburb show, a strong mix between hip hop/break dance with a contemporary dance approach. Music and movement synergise in an original manner within an enticing light plan.
Among the 5 very fit and outstanding guys the only girl stands her ground in a charming way, refreshing how her being the only female was never used as a cliché.
The darker boys steal the show, the taller two with their charisma and attack whereas the stockier dancer actually makes the title come true in his super human break dance moves, my jaw dropped several times when he flashes and flies around the stage with an amazing precision.
I wasn’t sure about the mime scene although the funny interpretation of the guys works and its unexpected.
You can tell the choreographer had a vision for this work, and it feels authentic and relevant. If you love dance this is a must see.

What a wonderful 45 minutes spent at Zoo Southside watching these 6 boys and 1 girl perform Super Human

Blending street dance, with acrobatics, gymnastics, hip hop, funk, it’s all in there set to a upbeat energetic sound score that isn’t blasting or repetitive. With some ingenious inventions fused with classic moves and shapes flowing through the numbers.
