Hungry Sharks (Austria)
Choreographer Valentin Alfery and producer Dusana Baltic founded the urban dance company Hungry Sharks in 2011. In order to establish the movement language of urban dance styles in theatre the company regularly produces feature-length, urban dance pieces for international performance.
They perform their productions in Austria, Spain, Turkey, Italy, Croatia and Romania.
The non-verbal dance piece #fomo – the fear of missing out was awarded a bonus for performing arts by the Federal Chancellor's Office.
In 2015 the company reached the second place out of 43 companies in the choreography competition Prospettiva Danza Theatro in Padova (Italy) with #fomo – the fear of missing out.
As a further goal the Hungry Sharks have set themselves the task of allowing the top of the Austrian urban dancers professional conditions - a step for the connection to the international top. For this reason, as in previous years, all productions are based on dancers of the Austrian hip hop scene.
