The Movement Arena — International Urban Dance Battles

Augusta Raurica
Saturday, 15 June

In 2016, "the movement" was founded by professional dancers and cultural workers as a platform for promoting movement, education, and hip-hop arts with the aim of allowing children, young people, and other interested parties to discover their own potential through movement, music, design, and language. With "the movement arena," the non-profit organization offers local, national, and international artists as well as young talents a platform to present themselves to a broad public. The selection of inspiring locations, the professional framework, and the world-class performances are fixed values of "the movement arena" and since its debut it has developed into one of the most important events of the urban dance scene in Switzerland.
On this Saturday, “the movement arena,” which will take place at the Theater Augusta Raurica, will focus on hip hop culture and the world-famous dance form “breaking,” which will be an official discipline for the first time at the Summer Olympics in Paris in 2024! International and local stars as well as young talents in the urban hip hop dance art come together to compete in a modern “dance battle” in the Roman arena. This year's edition is all about legends, paired with young talents and the Cypher Kings & Queens. So look forward to Top-class 2 vs 2 battles in the “Legends & Young Gunz” format; thrilling 1 vs 1 duels for the title of B-Boy Cypher King; thrilling 1 vs 1 battles for the crown of the B-Girl Cypher Queens; as well as another highlight that has yet to be revealed. The audience can rate all battles via an app and thus directly decide who emerges as the winner of the battles—your vote counts! This day promises fireworks, where the energy of urban dance art merges with the historical atmosphere of the Roman theater.
Tickets are CHF 28 for adults, CHF 17 for kids ages 12-18 years and students, and free for kids under age 12. The ticket entitles you to a return trip in the TNW area to Augst/Kaiseraugst on the day of the event.
