Description:

The fifth annual Westobou Festival promises to transform well-known landmarks with art installations; unleash the soul sounds of the past, through music, and present and future and introduce one of the world’s most anticipated new dance companies—all of this wrapped up with a taste of poetic narrative and fine wine.

Parkour is a sport on which you have to go from one point of the city to another as efficiently and quickly as possible, overcoming any obstacles in your way: walls, fences, trees, etc. This has made Parkour THE urban sport, included in recent pop culture music videos .

Danish film maker Kaspar Astrup Schröder  created MY PLAYGROUND, a documentary on movement, tricking, freerunning and parkour, and its relation with the urban spaces. This documentary will features scenes with parkour masters Team Jiyo  and interviews with urban planners, local politicians, architects and philosophers.
