Ilaria Citti – KRUMP
with Gilles Gavillet, Diego Bontognali
As a Krump dancer, I have noticed a lack of editorial content dedicated to this dance. Originating in the underprivileged areas of South Central in Los Angeles in the 1990s, Krump is a way for dancers to express their anger, aggression, frustration and pain in a positive way. This book sheds light on the spirit of this dance through its codes: its community spirit, its vocabulary, its music and its competitions. By seeking to meet those involved in the dance scene in Switzerland, I hope to offer an authentic perspective on this movement.
