Bruno Beltrão

Brazilian choreographer Bruno Beltrão has since 1996 been devising performances that combine street dance, breakdance and hip hop with contemporary dance. At the same time highly physical and analytical, his influential choreographies question the established, masculine movement structures and stereotypes of hip hop. His company Grupo de Rua has been touring internationally since 2002, the same year the group was first invited to Tanz im August. Beltrão was awarded New York’s prestigious Bessie award for “H3” (2010) and for his recent production “Inoah” (2020).
