Breakin Convention

International Festival of Hip Hop Dance Theatre

Breakin’ Convention, the international festival of hip hop dance theatre, returns with another line-up of jaw-dropping performances by companies from around the world and around the corner. This hugely popular production is hosted and curated by UK hip hop theatre artist Jonzi D.

Alongside performances from local crews, Breakin’ Convention includes ILL-Abilities (International), a b-boy company that challenges the misconceptions about people with disabilities and Ukweli Roach (UK), with an ensemble performance about temptation and vice, and Wanted Posse (France) expressing the roots of their personal revolutions.

Breakin’ Convention is more than just a show: DJs, dancers, demonstrations and workshops take over the foyer in the ultimate celebration of hip hop culture.

Representing the South West dancers from Hype Dance, Swindon Dance YCA, RePosition & Winston Pyke will be performing.

The foyer activities will also include DJ performance from Luke Type (TYPESUN) and live graffiti from Cheba (Weapon of Choice).
