Breakin' ConventionTaking place every May bank holiday weekend, the annual two-day international festival of hip hop and dance theatre, curated by Sadler's Wells associate artist Jonzi D, is back for a 17th year in 2020. Featuring performances from some of the world's greatest poppers, lockers, B-boys and B-girls, the line-up for this year's Breakin' Convention includes the return of South Korea's Jinjo Crew, "experts at whipping a packed house into a frenzied appreciation" (The Times), and France's Geometrie Variable, who explore a style resembling the inner mechanics of a timepiece. UK-based Spoken Movement, which was part of Dance Elargie: Dance Expanded here in October 2019, also joins the line-up. The festival takes over the whole Sadler's Wells space with dance workshops, graffiti, DJs and freestyle sessions taking place all over the building.
