Besim Hoti & Marielle Rijkaart | TEDxRotterdam
Besim Hoti is student at Codarts and dancer in Scapino Ballet. He started dancing in Sliedrecht when he was 14. Electric boogie was his specialty. ‘My friends and I viewed clips and movies on YouTube. We taught ourselves, on the street.’ Artistic director Ed Wubbe created a dance piece for Besim and Michal Rynia to the music of Johan Sebastian Bach, called B.A.M. ‘One day Ed Wubbe asked me if I wanted to take part in a new show with ‘Leading Edge’, the solo version of B.A.M. I immediately said yes!
On TEDxRotterdam Besim Hoti and musician Marielle Rijkaart performed Leading Edge, what a thrill!
