The Rite of Krump
Grichka Caruge

The dance style krump, which originated in the Black community of LA, is danced resistance against racism and discrimination as well as an expression of inner conflicts and contradictions. In A Human Race, five international krump dancers come together in a circle of sand. Accompanied by the highly emotional music of Igor Stravinsky, a bitter battle for freedom, participation and recognition begins.
