Anthony Egea, artistic director and choreographer of the Compagnie Rêvolution, has developed a unique hip hop style by setting its vocabulary against other languages.

Urban Ballet produces a skillful melange between classical music and hip hop inspired movements. The result is unique work of art, tinged with the myriad influences of its choreographer.


Inspired by classical ballet, Urban Ballet, is composed of four acts that show four incarnations of the body. Each of the ten dancers tries to express artistic singularity through a gesture that slowly frees itself from the usual hip hop “delivery” and evolves in a universe, borne by the standards of classical music repertoire.
