An international festival of hip hop dance theatre! Every May Bank Holiday at Sadler’s Wells Theatre, London. Touring the UK May 2014!
Innovation and creativity within the hip hop realm
Hosted and curated by UK hip hop legend Jonzi D, this unique festival is the only event of its kind in the UK and is an unprecedented chance to see some of the world’s greatest hip hop dance talent gathered together under one roof.
As well as the annual festival held at Sadler’s Wells in London each May, the festival also tours around the UK.
“Breakin’ Convention represents the origins and evolution of hip hop culture from around the world and around the corner”
Breakin’ Convention is committed to celebrating, elevating and supporting hip-hop dance theatre. Spearheaded by the ubiquitous Jonzi D, we work with the most respected, innovative and inspirational artists. Through our world-renowned international festival, professional development, youth projects and educational programme we seek to position hip-hop dance alongside more historically established artforms.
Breakin’ Convention are based at and supported by Sadler’s Wells.
We are a continually evolving organisation and since the birth of our festival in 2004 we have grown to encompass a range of events and services.
Breakin’ Convention (Festival and Tour), Pioneers, Open Art Surgery, Future Elements and Back to the Lab are all key projects in our calendar.
Our core values include profiling the world’s elite hip-hop performers, nurturing UK-based talent, exploring the possibilities of hip-hop dance theatre, educating on the foundations of hip-hop dance and engaging with children and young people
