Rumble
by JUDITH MACKRELL for the Guardian

In the summer of 2004, a German hip hop show came from nowhere to scoop most of the press awards on the Edinburgh Fringe. Yet, as Rumble returns for an eight-week tour of the UK, it proves, once again, that a festival hit isn't necessarily forever.

Shakespeare at street level
by ZOE ANDERSON for the Independent

The international cast speak a mixture of languages, with a single snatch of Shakespeare at the beginning. The story is told in dance and gesture, with choreography by Lorca Renoux, a French spray-painter who danced with Pina Bausch. Dancers move on and around a scaffolding set, film projections showing different urban settings. Dmitri Jourde's Mercutio changes channels with a mobile phone, then tries to sell it to the front row.

Rumble - Renegade Theatre
By Lucy Wallis for The Stage

In what could be described as a tale of star-crossed b-boy and b-girl, the German hip-hop company, Renegade Theatre has transformed Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet into a tale of gangland warfare.

Combining stunt dancing, hip-hop and contemporary dance, Rumble, which had success at the 2004 Edinburgh Fringe Festival, is set on a stage complete with mobile scaffolding and screens, replicas of inner-city hi-rise flats.

Streetlife
by LYNDSEY WINSHIP for the Guardian

Luckily, they're saved from cliche by the city landscape coming alive behind them. The graffiti artists use the set as their blank walls, and cursors fly across the stage. The squiggling of cigarette smoke, the heat of a dancer's body branded into the wall in glowing colours, the dark night scrubbed away to become morning - they all appear and disappear as quickly as you can cut and paste.

Street Life, Aurora Nova
by ZOE ANDERSON for the Independent

Perhaps hip-hop needs conflict. ... Street Life, this year's follow-up, features no rival gangs, and it languishes without them.
