The piece was created during residencies in Paris and Helsinki with the Nordic Hip Hop to the Stage-project, which aims to bring closer hip hop culture and the performing arts. Additionally, five of the dancers present their first solo creations.

URB Festival is a street art and culture festival produced by Kiasma Theatre every summer since 2000, presenting the impact of ever-changing and youth culture on many forms of contemporary art. URB makes space for incompleteness, enables experiments and connects communities, artists and actors. This year, the festival will be intertwined with the themes of the ARS22 exhibition in Kiasma, which include coming together, exploring our common world and sharing experiences through art.
