Nelson Arts Festival presents CUDO
Momentum Productions and Malia Johnston from Movement of the Human, in association with Tempo Dance Festival.
CUDO (Latin): to beat, strike or forge
An exciting mixture of urban beats, mechanical movement, AV and sound technology.
CUDO takes urban contemporary dance and enhances it with sound and visuals to draw the audience into the minds of beat makers and beat breakers. The cast creates and reacts to live music production made with tap-dancing feet and percussive bodies.
Manipulated real-time graphic visuals allow the cast to expand on choreographic concepts. Acrobatic, robotic and liquid hip-hop hybrid movement push the boundaries and explore the vast possibilities of bodies in space and time.
This electrifying new work features some of NZ’s top urban and contemporary dancers, including members of the internationally acclaimed hip-hop crew, IDentity Dance Company, the Cesan Brothers and Matthew Moore.
“A fabulous unrelenting onslaught of high energy music and dance… These guys are a must see.” THEATREVIEW
