From the Guardian:<P><B>Rappers challenge tappers in Bounce</B> <P><BR>Judith Mackrell<BR>Guardian<P>Thursday April 26, 2001<P><BR> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR>A street-dance troupe from Sweden with a show called Bounce doesn't exactly conjure up the mean streets of New York where hip-hop culture started. As soon as the dancers hit the stage you spot a scrubbed, eager quality about some of them that's far more suggestive of stage school than inner-city ghetto. Yet while Bounce is really a family show - mixing parent-friendly disco and lindy hop amid the breakdancing, and staging boisterously comic gags to further soften the dancers' image - it does convincingly showcase some of the sharpest moves of the street genre.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE> <P><BR><A HREF="http://www.guardian.co.uk/Archive/Article/0,4273,4176037,00.html" TARGET=_blank><B>MORE...</B></A><BR>

DONALD HUTERA in The Times sees 'Bounce'<P> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR>STREET dance is an umbrella term for a slew of contemporary, urban kinetic styles that grew out of hip hop culture and developed globally to incorporate funky, jazzy, African roots into the mix.<P>Bounce, which has an eight-week run at London’s Roundhouse, is far from an academic display of street-dance fecundity. Its primary function is to entertain. Fair enough. But what the producers and director Anthony van Laast have done is, I suspect, akin to what can happen when flamenco or tango are lifted out of the club or dance-hall and slapped on to the stage. Some of the life-blood, the raw juice of personal artistic expression, is siphoned off for mass consumption.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE> <P><BR><A HREF="Http://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/0,,62-123000,00.html" TARGET=_blank><B>More...</B></A>
