The legend says that skateboarding was born when low waves forced surfers in Los Angeles out of the water onto the asphalt. Since then, skating has evolved into a unique choreography. It engages with the surfaces of our cities and appropriates public spaces with daring tricks. Finally, this art of movement is also conquering the theater: Together with a group of skaters and dancers, choreographer Mette Ingvartsen transforms the Frankfurt LAB into a skatepark. She expands the usual dance vocabulary with kickflips, 180s, and boardslides - a lively reminder of her youth when she was a skater herself. The energetic performance playfully pushes the boundaries of what is possible and creates a utopian community where the differences between skateboarding and dance, between high and subculture, theater, and the street no longer matter.
