Wang Ramirez (France/Germany)
Performing under the company name Clash 66, the duo Wang Ramirez debuted together with AP15, whose virtuosic technique and artistry earned them the opportunity to develop and present their work in the international dance scene. The powerful artistic force of this piece paves the way for Wang and Ramirez's own choreographic vocabulary and aesthetic ideas. This creation has been recognized for its outstanding quality by numerous prices such as the New York Bessie Award for Outstanding Performance at Breakin' Convention in 2013.
