Flamencura @ Sadler’s Wells Review

Flamencura shouldn‘t be viewed on a stage in London. It should be experienced somewhere in the Andelusian mointains, with the beat echoing off the hills, the smell of nature mixing with man and the concentration shared between the audience and performers. Luckily we do not need to travel south to see this show, they have brought it here to London and we are lucky that they have.

Traces @ The Peacock Theatre (Sadler’s Wells) Review

There is a moment in Le 7 Doigts de la Main‘s Traces, just before the interval, when one of the performers climbs a metal pole using his hands and feet. In most shows this would be a highlight, a moment of awe for the audience to take in. In Traces the athletisism on display is such that this one doesn‘t even register, it‘s a warm up for another move that leaves the audience breathless.

Titanium @ The Peacock Theatre (Sadler’s Wells) Review

Some things in life are simply, inarguably, cool. Titanium, the new show on at The Peacock Theatre, produced by Sadler‘s Wells is one of those things.

Breakin’ Convention @ Sadler’s Wells Review

If you switch over to any of the numerous amount of music channels we find ourselves spoilt for choice with, what styles of dance are you most likely to see? Tutting? Whacking? Popping? Locking? Culturally we’ve shifted from the Jazz and balletic routines of the 60s, 70s and 80s and have embraced ‘street dance’ culture, an umbrella term for a range of dances inspired by the emergence of Hip Hop in the late 70s.

Artistic Director of Breakin’ Convention Jonzi D speaks to Theatrefullstop about this year’s event!

Jonzi D

An Alumni of the London Contemporary Dance School, Jonzi D had noticed that there was a niche in the dance market missing. There didn’t appear to be any training provided by dance schools, or many dance opportunities for Hip Hop performers. Fast forward to 2015, and Jonzi D has established the longest running Hip Hop theatrical event within the UK, having founded Breakin’ Convention 11 years ago this year! With Hip Hop artists flocking to be apart of the established event, the UKs dance future appears to be very bright. Ahead of this year’s Breakin’ Convention, which is set to take place on the May Bank Holiday weekend from Saturday 2nd to Sunday 3rd May, Theatrefullstop were able to speak to the Hip Hop theatre pioneer about the importance of events such as Breakin’ Convention, what he looks for in performers and gives advice to aspiring artists.
