H2

Whoever manages, in the first two minutes, to turn the heterogeneous audience into a wall of applause can do whatever they want. The battle is already won.

- BalletTanz

"The upcoming choreographer of the year is Bruno Beltrão. His work with young hip hoppers from Brazil, "H2- 2005", has met with such a largely positive response that there has been talk of a "hip hop revolution", with some critics maintaining that his influence is comparable to that of Forsythe in ballet. This is perhaps a little early, but understandable: the excellence of the dancers and the intelligence of the choreographer creates exciting choreography that is never interested only in effect; that, with apparent calm, penetrates the optic nerve of the person so convincingly that some critics claim it marks the return of contemporary dance to movement, after a growing rejection of current dance, while still providing the grandeur and totality of an intelligent composition."
