Breakin' Convention Presents... Pierre Rigal: Scandale

Scandale_Rigal©pierregrosbois.com-407.jpg

Part of Breakin’ Convention Presents… initiative to programme evening-length works, Pierre Rigal's SCANDALE features six agile hip hop dancers accompanied by a live musician whose soundtrack includes ambient chamber music and electronica, in a shamanic piece that investigates the birth of choreography.

SCANDALE stars dancers Steve "Lelong" Kamseu, Camille 'Kami' Regneault, Julien 'Bee D' Saint-Maximin, members of b-boy crew Yeah Yellow, as seen on the Breakin’ Convention 2017 Luxembourg and USA tour, as well as at Sadler’s Wells Sampled 2018.

This is hip hop dance theatre at its most curious making its UK debut on the Sadler's Wells main stage.

Pierre Rigal has presented work at Breakin’ Convention in the past, including 2011's Asphalte. Choreographer and artistic director of Compagnie Dernière Minute, Pierre has been creating cutting edge dance for video, TV and stage since 2003.

Open Art Surgery

Open Art Surgery is hip hop theatre dissected, examined and put under the microscope. Line up TBA - put this date in your diary!

Breakin' Convention invites you to delve into the mind and souls of some of the UK’s finest hip hop artists as they dare to try something new, dangerous and exciting! 

After spending a week working under the guidance of two of the UK's leading theatre mentors, Jonzi D and Ivan Blackstock, our established and emerging artists present their work. See it for the first time, hear their creative journey and then share your feedback in this unique night of performances and live discussion.

Open Art Surgery is not about presenting finished work. The focus is to develop theatre skills with hip hop artists and to experiment with new ideas. Hosted by Jonzi D, you're invited to question and critique the work shown, giving you the opportunity to get inside the minds of the artists, and giving artists themselves the unique opportunity to question their audience.

Witness cutting-edge hip hop theatre as it happens!

If you are interested in participating in Open Art Surgery or other professional development opportunities, please get in touch: info@breakinconvention.com
