Blue Balls Festival Lucerne

This performance was one close to the heart for the artist Christian Martinez.
„At the age of 4 I got my very first walkman. Ever since, I’ve been in love with music.
Never have I thought, that this connection would bring me up to a stage in front of the KKL in Lucerne. Never have I thought that I would be physically able to perform for two hours straight. Never have I thought to have so many people around to witness this special moment, for which I will always be greatful.
Thank you to Blue Balls festival for having me and to all my people who have been supporting and joining me along the ride.“

Event – The History of B-Boying

11007534_10155188868980632_344363989_nWorld premiere: The current art project “The History of B-Boying” of Christian “La Furia” Martinez pushes the limits of his self-created art form Blind Tracks. In his latest work, the former swiss breakdance champion concentrates on the history of B-Boying and integrates it into his paintings.
The paintings of “La Furia” are combined with a few live performances and a talk. The legendary B-Boy Crazy Legs of the Rock Steady Crew from New York is going to speak about the development of B-Boying as well as showing some of his skills. „Crazy Legs“ grew up in Manhattan, New York City, where he was introduced to Breakdance by his older brother when he was nine. He was an original member of the Rock Steady Crew after its foundation in 1979. “La Furia” and J.J.Flueck (Drummer) will have theirs show too.
During the exhibition a painting made by Christian Martinez will be auctioned. The revenue will be donated to the Regio Basiliensis foundation.
