MOVE.UNLTD invites you to open their two-week residency with sounds you cannot resist to move to: Kuduro, Afro, Ballroom Beats and more.
The dance floor is a site of joy, sweat and a sense of freedom as well as revolution. MOVE.UNLTD will bring together local and international talent showcasing uplifting sounds that are deeply rooted in a need to resist existing power structures.
Kuduro emerged in the late 80s: As a response to unrest following the civil war and in resistance to colonial rule in Angola, it draws from music genres like Soca and Zouk for a distinctive movement – and developed its own dance style with isolations and staccato movements, fallings and challenging the construct of debility with a high number of disabled bodies performing Kuduro as well.
Founded by black and latinx gay and trans people around the 70ies in New York, ballroom is a queer culture that uses white, hetero-normative societal expectations and limits to create its own space against it – resisting it and celebrating each other instead.
The night will be scored by some of the most exciting movers and shakers from around Europe. Jay Jay Revlon and a team of Berlin’s most beautiful voguers will lead a showcase of their skills on the dance floor before Portugal’s DJ Narciso and Nuno Beats of Lisbon’s Príncipe Disco blend house and techno with sounds of the African diaspora. Berlin-based DJ Nomi will follow with a tasteful blend—Funk, Soul, House, Dancehall, and Afrobeat included–before No Shade’s Sara Fumaça closes the night.
