There’s more to hip hop theatre than Hamilton…


Enjoyed Hamilton, and seeking more great hip hop experiences?

Try Breakin’ Convention, the annual festival of hip hop dance theatre in London

It’s the ultimate place to see even the latest cutting-edge ideas marrying hip hop and theatre and has been the platform for many feature-length shows that have gone on the West End, including ZooNation’s Into the Hoods and Boy Blue Entertainment’s Olivier Award-winning show, Pied Piper, since 2004.

How is Breakin’ Convention different to Hamilton?

Breakin’ Convention is a variety show. Performances are mostly dance-based, with some pieces including spoken word and live music. Performances at Breakin’ Convention are shorter form - up to 30 minutes in length - but with such a variety of performances to watch each night, less really is more.

So it’s just a show to watch dance?

No. The entire venue of Sadler’s Wells is taken over with live DJs, dance circles, graffiti and free have-a-go activities. With international dance crews performing on stage from all over the world, this is your chance to experience Sadler’s Wells, but as you’ve never known it.
