How do bodies integrate, undergo and can ultimately undo and free themselves from the impacts of racism?


KRUMP appears as an aesthetic that confronts these questions in a physical, mental and emotional way. Through the historical context of its origin, KRUMP embodies and denounces social inequality and racial discrimination. It already constitutes a translation of the effects of systemic racism on bodies. But it is also and above all a “danced overcoming” of anger and violence. An expression of joie de vivre, passion and freedom. A HUMAN RACE wants to make visible the path of the dancer as much as his dance, his context and his current areas of tension. The KRUMP identifies and illustrates not only the problems, but also wishes to find, to give to see and to feel solutions, to create a middle ground, to seek a balance. The wish is also to give to the practice of KRUMP, more space of creation and visibility and thus contribute to its evolution in the form of an encounter with the stage space, with the public and also with other musical forms.


“KRUMP is the rage of life, the fight, and at the same time the search for balance. It is the vital language of self-affirmation that manifests itself differently in each dancer. It is the gesture, the movement, the urgency of the body, the percussion of the feet on the ground or the fist in the air. KRUMP instinctively lives more than it says: no injunction, no intellectualization.”

This project was set up by the Offensive Tanz. This structure questions the artistic, institutional and educational scene, and relies on university research to develop, produce and promote in Germany and Europe innovative choreographic creations aimed at « young audiences ». This year 2020 has raised the issue of structural racism. In order to transpose and interrogate these questions in a choreographic creation for the general public but also for the adolescent public, the aesthetics and the KRUMP movement appeared most relevant.

To carry out such a project, the OFFENSIVE TANZ team naturally turned to one of the greatest representatives and experts of KRUMP in Europe: the choreographer Grichka Caruge. The questions raised by the research will be addressed in an essay by Nora Amin on KRUMP via interviews with the choreographer and the work of a class of college students on the subject of racism, will be integrated into the creative process.
