Breakout will provide an opportunity to reflect and exchange ideas around issues of professional representation and agency within the street dance community. As well as acknowledging the huge strides the community has taken over the last decade and the invaluable support of established arts organisations.
For those interested in facilitating events or establishing themselves at the intersection between street dance and contemporary arts, the symposium will also examine the experiences and strategies of those working in the field of professional dance.
The symposium will include selected performances, open dialogue in relation to issues facing the dance community and a diverse panel of artists/arts organisations who are working to highlight street dance, both in Ireland and abroad. We are particularly delighted to welcome Breakin’ Convention’s Artistic Director Jonzi D to our afternoon panel.
