5813694Breakin' Convention 2019: International Festival of Hip Hop Dance Theatre
DateSaturday 4th May 2019 to Sunday 5th May 2019
DescriptionDistinguished festival and Sadler's Wells Project Breakin' Convention returns to take over Sadler's Wells with its annual celebration of hip hop over the May Bank Holiday with a fresh, diverse and electrifying line-up. The International Festival of Hip Hop Dance Theatre, now in its sixteenth year, takes place on Saturday 4 and Sunday 5 May, showcasing the finest and most exciting hip hop talent, hosted and curated by Sadler's Wells Associate Artist Jonzi D, renowned hip hop theatre pioneer. The festival offers breakin' crews, innovative popping, creative krump and soulful house dance, as well as entertainment from old skool pioneers alongside the freshest street dancers from both around the world, and around the corner. Attendees experience hip hop culture in a unique way, with a variety of taster sessions, workshops and free activities throughout the entire Sadler's Wells building. This year the line-up includes iconic contortionist b-boy Rubberlegz, who was recently seen on the Sadler's Wells in Sadler's Wells production A Quiet Evening of Dance by William Forsythe. He performs in a kaleidoscopic duet with James Gregg that stretches the limbs and the possibilities of the human body. French artist B-boy Junior, "most watched b-boy of all time", demonstrates his incredible upper body strength and gravity-defying aerial moves, coupling with Greek popper Kalliopi Tarasidou. Stylistic French company Geometrie Variable explore the popping technique of tutting with a style resembling the inner mechanics of a timepiece. 16 year old b-girl Logistx, a rising star of the Los Angeles dance scene and of San Diego's Underground Flow, is a dancer with a refined move set beyond her years. Her command of hip hop dance styles saw her winning NBC's programme 'World of Dance' in America as part of The Lab in 2018.
