Breakin’ Convention returns for its first live event since lockdown started. Over two days, this influential international festival of hip hop dance theatre presents an action-packed show, featuring three dynamic hip hop dance crews from across the UK. 

Live and direct at Sadler’s Wells just when we need it most, Breakin’ Convention Social DisDancing is hosted by Sadler’s Wells Associate Artist and Breakin’ Convention founder, Jonzi D.

Line-up features AIM, the explosive all-female popping crew, presenting Suspended, a new work exploring the experience of losing the ground beneath your feet, then finding the resilience to anchor once again. Birmingham-based O’Driscoll Collective premieres a powerful duet titled One%, looking at duality, the mind and the importance of mental health awareness. Using the style of breakin’, the work responds to society today and misunderstood emotions.

Perennial Breakin’ Convention stalwarts and East London friends, the mighty Boy Blue complete the bill with an exciting new production, more details soon. Breakin’ Convention Social DisDancing runs nightly on Friday December 11 and Saturday December 12 with an additional afternoon show.
