Witness the future of hip hop dance theatre with a line-up of work by young people, for young people!
Future Elements Night is when the kids run things at Breakin' Convention with live music, dance and spoken word from a line-up of young emerging artists.
The night will also feature the screening of Breakin' Convention’s music video created by participants of the Future Elements Project.
After, join the artists in the cafe for the Future Elements Jam where young DJs hit the decks, MCs grab the mic and dancers jam.
Open Art Surgery is hip hop theatre dissected, examined and put under the microscope.
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, Anthony Ekundayo-Lennon 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!
Step into the salacious side of street dance and experience an exclusive night of hip hop cabaret as Breakin' Convention "comes of age" for its sweet 16th birthday.
Following an inaugural launch in 2015, join Breakin' Convention on its opening evening, kicking off the festival in an adults-only, adult-themed evening of works and commissions.
