ONE MAN WALKING

ONE MAN WALKING explores some of the intensity and challenges of life in the metropolis, using krump – an expressive and highly energetic dance movement – combined with the uplifting, soaring excitement of free-running.

It’s rush hour on London Bridge. Crowds are going to work – faces, legs, shadows, backpacks. One man is standing alone. We watch the world through his eyes. He looks up and sees a solitary figure standing on the corner of a tall building. He starts walking through the City of London, witnessing its characters, finally standing up to the Bank of England.

It was specially commissioned by Channel 4 Television, conceived entirely for the camera and features dancers from the award-winning Boy Blue Entertainment Writer and co-deviser Jonzi D says: ‘Learn how to vault insults with a pinch of salt. Jump the hardship, it’s cathartic. That’s why we get to krump the hardest’.

‘ONE MAN WALKING was a terrific little film and it did remind me of the early days of Channel 4 when they were being very experimental with dance and actually making ‘proper’ dance films. And this was a ‘proper’ dance film. It had a kind of narrative line, it had drama it had huge emotion and tension about it’.
Saturday Review

‘a striking introduction to another aspect of street culture… pick of the day’.
