The name URBANATIX has been synonymous with modern street acrobatics for more than ten years and has meanwhile achieved Europe-wide appeal with the annual large stage productions in the Jahrhunderthalle Bochum. The URBANATIX ensemble reacted to the Corona-related cancellation of shows since 2020 with its strongest weapon: creativity.

Thus, in the middle of the pandemic, the idea was born to use the charisma of URBANATIX and the young diversity and creativity bundled in the project to develop a cinematic homage to the home of URBANATIX, the city of Bochum - fitting for the 700th anniversary of the city. With the energetic, 20-minute short film "URBANATIX HOME", the URBANATIX ensemble turned the whole of Bochum into its stage and staged its urban environment cinematically in a completely new and forward-looking way.

Originally conceived as a creative alternative for the play-free year, the film now becomes the basis for an extraordinary stage project at the Schauspielhaus Bochum: in an intimate URBANATIX special edition entitled "URBANATIX HOME - on stage", the elements of film, dance, music, street style and new circus merge on stage at a top international level. The iconic images of the film become the backdrop and stimulus for the exuberant expressiveness of a young and multicultural ensemble of musicians, dancers, artists and word acrobats, who approach the concept of "home" with their very own perspectives and life paths.
