Eight breakdancers present the start of a whole new martial art form in Kata. The French choreographer Anne Nguyen is a celebrated breakdancer, who loves martial arts, particularly viet vo dao, Brazilian jiu-jitsu and capoeira, where dance and martial arts already meet. In Kata her dancers perform individually and as a group in a series of movements with (imaginary) opponents. She uses these movements, most of which come from breakdancing, to create a contemporary form of martial arts with urban dance. Kata is a strong performance of a new ritual with which to resist contemporary forms of oppression.
