We welcome dance in from the streets as the venue is transformed into a hip-hop festival of jaw-dropping performances by companies from around the world and around the corner. Hosted and curated by UK hip hop pioneer Jonzi D, Breakin’ Convention is more than just a show: DJs, dancers, demonstrations and workshops take over Brighton Dome’s spaces in the ultimate celebration of hip hop culture.
Alongside performances from local crews, Breakin’ Convention includes ILL-Abilities, an international b-boy company that challenges misconceptions about people with disabilities; Ukweli Roach, a founding member of UK’s BirdGang Dance Company and star of the film StreetDance 3D; and Wanted Posse, one of France’s leading crews. The perfect excuse for all ages to experience hip hop culture, Breakin’ Convention brings some of the best poppers, lockers, b-boys and street dancers on the planet to your doorstep. Take part in freestyle sessions with DJs in the Café- bar and workshops from top international artists such as Bright Soul - Brighton’s finest b-boys.
The Breakin' Convention line up includes local acts BPM Dance Academy, Sep Dashti, SS4A Demo Squad, Streetfunk & South Downs Percussion Ensemble, T21 Paragon and Urban Strides
