From „Blurred Lines“ to „A New Dawn“
Initiated during a digital residency at the Dutch Dance Days in 2020, „Blurred Lines“ is the brainchild of breakdancers and percussionists Redo and Dominique, director Peter Leung, and videomaker Noralie, who brought their individual expertise to the project. The result is a visually stunning and dynamic performance that blurs the lines between music, dance, and digital art.
Inspired by their own experiences of being labeled and boxed in as breakdancers and percussionists, Redo and Dominique created a unique and immersive experience that challenges traditional notions of what it means to be a percussionist or a breakdancer. The extraordinary collaboration between Redo, Dominique, and with Binkbeats, a Dutch musician, producer, and multi-instrumentalist, added for „A New Dawn“ an extra dimension to the performance, with his unique approach to creating music deconstructing and reassembling live recordings of various instruments into complex compositions.

The use of digital technology added an extra layer to the performance, creating a mesmerizing and unforgettable experience that will undoubtedly captivate audiences worldwide.
Redo, along with the other dancers Camille Bundel and Ozzi, showcased a level of softness and sensibility that was truly remarkable. The combination of the soft, fluid dance moves and the striking use of light and music made for a breathtaking experience. Despite his physical disability, Redo moved with incredible grace and fluidity, executing moves that left the audience amazed. His performance was a testament to his incredible talent and determination.
The performance was both emotional and powerful, with the dancers moving in perfect harmony to the music.
But what makes „A New Dawn“ truly exceptional is the message it conveys. The performance is a powerful and inspiring reminder that artists should not be limited by the labels or categories that society often places on them. It encourages us all to embrace our creativity and push the boundaries of what is possible.
In conclusion, „A New Dawn“ was a stunning concert performance that left a lasting impression on everyone who saw it. Redo, Dominique, Binkbeats, Camille Bundel, and Ozzi deserve high praise for their outstanding work, as they have successfully blurred the lines between traditional art forms and created a unique and immersive experience that challenges our perception of what is possible in music, dance, and digital art.
