About Us

Circul’r Company considers urban dance as a real revolution in the history of human movement, with highly established floorworks. Using  the non impressive,  subtle version of breakdance that can be appreciated in small cyphers, we aim at developing a poetic breakdance emphasizing on high quality movements. We explore how to adapt to a theatrical form and ask ourselves: ? Can we give life to our dance  with different metaphors or qualities? Can we travel with our dance ? Can we feel these moves with our arms only ? On the back? Standing?  Can we grow in partnering? Can we breathe together differently ?
