Red Bull Anadolu Break

April 1, 2016

Pera Film is screening two documentaries exploring the journey of discovery taken by world-famous breakdance stars as part of Red Bull Anadolu Break, and behind-the-scenes footage of the Red Bull Anadolu Break Dance Show inspired by this story.

Anadolu Break Beyond Steps, the first film in the screening, sets out from the following question: Can Dance, one of the oldest arts that is found in all world cultures, bring East and West together? The film tells the story of the journey of Neguin from Brazil and Roxrite from the USA, two of the most talented B-Boys of the world, with Amigo (Kadir Memiş), one of the cofounders of the prestigious break dance crew Flying Steps, in which they explored original dances of Anadolu. This interesting journey, in which they encounter new understandings and perceptions, turns into a totally unexpected experience, and became an adventure of our heroes, interwoven with many special moments from Istanbul to Aydın, Antalya and Kars. Amigo, Neguin and Roxrite enrich what they learn from breakdance with their interactions with the locals of Anatolia, and show viewers how precious cultural meetings can be.

Anadolu Break Behind The Scenes, the second screening, focuses on behind the scenes of the Red Bull Anadolu Break dance show, which was inspired from the Anadolu Break –Beyond Steps documentary, received great feedback in 2015. The viewer witnesses the increasing excitement and funny experiences of the dancers behind the scenes as the show day draws close.

Our institutions have been stuck on linear Neo-Platonic tracks for 24 centuries. These antiquated processes of deduction have lost their authority. Just like art it has fallen off its pedestal. Legal, educational and constitutional systems rigidly subscribe to these; they are 100% text based.
