Back Into Time

In ‘Back into Time’, we meet three dancers who want to inspire others to dance and move freely – and not to be afraid of being oneself or of being a beginner. The dancers themselves are foolish, different and give themselves to the moment when they take you on a journey through many ways of expressing oneself through the body.

The performance is also a story about friendship, backing eachother up and the freedom to expressing oneself. Through different dance styles each with their kind of music, groove and way to move, ‘Back into Time’ show a way into an imaginative world where dance can be everything, and where nothing is wrong – as long as you keep playing with expression through movement. You will sense this by participating, sweating and by feeling the pulse and the groove of the music.  

Dung Chinh Nguyen, aka Slowz (VN), rooted in hiphop, has worked with many dance styles and movement genres. He plays a central role within the Vietnamese hiphop environment organizing projects, events and battles, being a dj creating music and video.
