In a world where revolutions happen at night and laws are delegated to daytime, what new forms can rebellion take? To da bone is a work that aims to tell a “dance” born from the profound revolt of the youth who lives in the suburbs of the great cities of northern Europe. A dance born inspired by the hardcore techno music scene of the 90s and that uses different styles ranging from Hard-Dance, Tech-style and Shuffle, but in particular the Jumpstyle, also called Jump, born and spread through YouTube and concentrated on jumps and the movement of the legs, where the arms are mainly used to maintain balance. The collective (LA) HORDE investigates the role of social media, with particular attention to YouTube and Facebook, seen as a method of expression, analyzing their role in the diffusion of culture, in this case of dance that sometimes comes from posting videos on social media network, thus creating a system of virtual and real competitions between the reference communities.
Young people share their online routines, exchanging styles and ideas, thereby bringing out new interactive communities. By defining their own “post internet” language, (LA) HORDE wonders about the role of new media and how they can mobilize the masses to create movements of political and social opposition.
To da Bone was presented in 2016 during the Danse Elargie in Paris at Théâtre de la Ville, immediately enjoying a great appreciation of the public, with its expressive and choreographic methods.
