Breakin Convention

Breakin’ Convention, the world’s ground-breaking festival of hip hop dance theatre, is back with a fresh new line up! Expect jaw-dropping and inspiring performances from internationally celebrated poppers, lockers, b-boys and b-girls in a festival that showcases local talent alongside global sensations.

This year’s line-up includes South Korea’s acclaimed Jinjo Crew, “experts at whipping a packed house into a frenzied appreciation” (The Times), and France’s Géométrie Variable, who explore popping technique of tutting with a style resembling the inner mechanics of a timepiece. Joining them is the UK’s very own Spoken Movement with their topical, thought provoking piece.

Hosted and curated by UK hip hop theatre legend and Breakin’ Convention Artistic Director Jonzi D, the festival also features DJs, graffiti artists, and freestyle sessions taking place all over the building. Join us for this ultimate celebration of hip hop culture.

Breakin’ Convention is an integral part of Sadler’s Wells artistic programme.
