Urbanatix

In 2009, young talents in the trend sports parkouring, free-running, breakdance, skateboarding and BMX were casted for the Urbanatix project for the first time. Today, the project is made up of 40 artists from more than 20 Ruhr cities, all of whom train together in Bochum. Once a year, the group presents their skills in a show boasting a blend of street art, beat-boxing, acrobatics and sophisticated lighting effects. Guest performances by international artists are likewise part of the programme. The show mainly takes place in Bochum's Jahrhunderthalle in November. Now and then, Urbanatix put on smaller performances at events such as Bochum Total and ExtraSchicht.
