Room 2 Manoeuvre’s outdoor pop-up dance performances to tour Scotland

Anything could become a dancefloor as performance company Room 2 Manoeuvre gets set to tour Scotland with their latest outdoor show.

City Breakz, a dance based commentary on space, place and identity, will begin in Glasgow before taking in St Andrews, Falkirk, Edinburgh and more.

Led by artistic director Tony Mills and in collaboration with the dancers, the show will see performers pop up in various city locations and urban structures.

Whether it’s a bench, steps or a wall, the dancers will negotiate the challenges of uneven surfaces, angles and gradients, armed only with a patch of linoleum and a sound system.

The aim of the show is to explore how we make room for art and culture to exist, to inspire and to be accessible in a changing city landscape.

Mills said: “I consider hip hop to be an original form of site-specific dance that responds to place and society. I myself have gone through those times of carrying my lino and boombox around the town trying to find somewhere to dance.

“I found spaces, buildings or venues where I and others were given room and encouragement to do our thing. But many of those spaces closed or were transformed. City Breakz is about that journey of trying to find those spaces in your home town where you fit in, where you can develop a sense of belonging and carve out your identity.

“In the rapid urbanisation of towns and cities it feels almost as if culture is being squeezed out to the periphery. So, I want to bring it back to the concrete streets, using an image that, beneath the surface, reveals something inherently important to all of us.”

City Breakz opens at Platform Glasgow on July 16, before visiting Greenock on July 20, Port Glasgow on July 21 and Gourock on July 22.

The Tramway show is on Friday July 23 with full details on all performances here:
