Marching & Breakin'

November 9, 2018: one night that challenges the cross-over between classical music and urban street culture. In the Opening Night of the international TROMP percussion competition and festival in Eindhoven, Dutch percussion virtuoso Dominique Vleeshouwers and leading Austrian percussion soloist Martin Grubinger team up with Eindhoven’s renowned breakdance crew The Ruggeds and the winner of the European Championship for wind orchestras St. Michaël van Thorn. Together they create a performance where breakdance turns into ballet, a traditional Dutch wind band is transformed into a hip-hop orchestra and intimate classical percussion gradually evolves into energetic beats that fill the main hall of Muziekgebouw Eindhoven.

Martin Grubinger is a true phenomenon. He turns his hand just as easily to a Gregorian repertoire as a grand show in the Eurovision Song Contest or a marathon concert in which he spends over four hours moving between 200 instruments. He is one of the prominent guests of this edition of TROMP, both in the professional jury of the competition and in the festival when he shares the stage with Dominique Vleeshouwers, a rising star from The Netherlands: as a winner of the jury-, audience and press prize of the TROMP competition in 2014, Dominique's international career has taken off.

The programme ranges from compositions by Steve ReichJacobTV and Chopin to drum improvisations, marches and a dance battle.

director: Caecilia Thunnissen
