With massive energy and personal stories on stage, YEBO YES! is inspired by isiPanstula dance, freestyle and club culture. The piece invites the audience to feel the dancer’s individual expression on stage, unfiltered and raw together with a strong presence of unity, support and heritage. It’s all about a synchronized mass that never seems to stop, amongst rhythms, characters, playfulness, footwork and drive. The meeting between the dancers, the cultures and the personalities gives the performance an honest expression and a raw image of what street-dance culture and personal expression can be.
