The amazing B-Team consists of 4 professional stage heroes that are bound by friendship and shared loyalty to the cause of saving the World… The pressure and constantly shifting power dynamics of this group of heroes lead to stir in the group and dangerous turn of events. The B-Team is a dance performance about (toxic) masculinity, heroism, and friendship. This action dance comedy is inspired by the cinema of the 80s (Rambo, Die Hard, Terminator…), actively citing, and recycling the pop-culture ethos of action heroes, while, confronting it with contemporary masculinity.

Review/interview from San Salvador: revistafactum
The B-Team exists in countless incarnations - with or without the wooden pallets, short or long (10-20-40-60min), in or outdoor. We performed in several locations around the world and luckily, everytime we get a chance to reinvent the piece.
