Who hasn’t dreamed of stepping into the limelight and showing on stage what he can do or what he thinks about the world? Nonetheless, what dreams could a young boy truly aim to achieve if his closest parent always stands in his way and grows to become his fiercest enemy? Can Icarus ever take flight if his soul always drags him down into the greyness of his everyday reality? And in spite of all difficulties, what could possibly help this boy to realise and use his power to change the world through his own very special skills and talent?
Teamed up with Debrecen’s acclaimed Eastsiders Hip Hop Dance Company, this brand-new dance theatre piece invited its audience into the captivating world of spectacular urban dance styles, featuring nearly 100 of Debrecen’s most talented dancers and choreographed by the European and World Champion hip hop dancer Péter Mika.
