Outdoor Performance

Kompany Malakhi continue to create unique and cutting edge work with this gritty yet graceful exploration of cause and effect. Combining the extreme sport of BMX Flatland with Breakin’ (breakdancing), Parkour and Contemporary Dance, Rotations twists and turns in an intricate and elegant game of rumours and whispers. Available in either short duet or longer quartet format, with or without set, it is an innovative and compelling celebration of art and sport.  Rotations is very flexible and can be performed indoors too.

BMX was proven to be an extremely popular sport at the Beijing Olympics and Rotations can build on that success. Parkour/Free Running has captured the imagination of young people, media and film companies across the globe.

Rotations will be touring the UK and internationally from Summer 2010 leading up to the Cultural Olympiad 2012.
