Breakin' ConventionThis annual three-day international festival of hip hop and dance theatre, curated by Sadler's Wells associate artist Jonzi D, is back for a 13th year in 2016. Breakin' Convention 2016 features performances from some of the world's greatest poppers, lockers, B-boys and B-girls including world champion b-boy crew The Ruggeds (Netherlands), experimental b-boys Iron Skulls (Spain) and leading streetdancer Antoinette Gomis from France. Taking place every May bank holiday weekend, this world-renowned celebration of hip hop dance culture takes over the space with live DJs, graffiti, workshops, performances, after parties and park jam. Expect a frenzy of cutting-edge performances with one head-spinning act after another taking to the stage to wow the audience. It's all hosted by Jonzi D, a central force in bringing street culture to Britain in the early 80s. Alongside world class performances the weekend is packed with live aerosol jams, workshop programmes, DJ demos and freestyle circles.
