Groove is a sense of turn. You know; when you hear music and are unable to sit still, or when you see a movement that you feel like trying.
Groove is a dance performance that has taken the form of a concert with various songs.
The songs have been created through improvisation with dance and drums. All material, both movement and sound, is based on each individual’s personal groove.
The work challenges what musicality can be, and how this can affect the community. The performance offers a generous musical presence, where it can be tempting for both young and old to step on the beat.
