Inspired by the legendary block parties of 1970’s New York, Sydney-based choreographer Nick Power (Two Crews, Between Tiny Cities) pays tribute to hip hop’s origins. Lining the edge of the stage the audience will be brought in close to the action to create a powerful and intimate space for the showdown.
Featuring world champion turntablist DJ Total Eclipse (AB Original, Funkoars) with 3 of Australia’s most respected Breakers, Anastasios Repousi, Justice Crew member and winner of Australia’s Got Talent; Jackson Garcia, member of breaking crews Skill at Will and Team Cream; and legendary Australian B*girl Demi Sorono.
