‘There is simply no other event in the dance calendar that is as exciting, humorous, sexy and political – all in one full-to-bursting package’ The Times
Breakin’ Convention, world’s biggest festival of hip hop dance theatre showcasing the very best from around the world and around the corner is returning to Brighton.
Curated and hosted by UK hip hop pioneer Jonzi D, this is an awe inspiring weekend of exceptional performances from world champion b-boy crews to cutting edge street dance companies – live on stage.
This year’s line-up includes South Korean super crew of poppers and b-boys Just Dance whose performance includes live Korean drumming; Canadian urban contemporary duo Tentacle Tribe; and Soweto Skeleton Movers who perform comedic contortionism fused with Pantsula, a style from their native South Africa. Our line-up of exceptional local crews includes BN1, Defiance, Killabeez, Steroshok & What Is Written Dance Company.
Spilling off stage and taking over the whole building, dance workshops, graffiti, DJs, and freestyle sessions make Breakin’ Convention an unforgettable experience for all the family.
