Belfast International Arts Festival in association with CQAF presents Between Tiny Cities រវាងទីក្រុងតូច by Nick Power as part of its extended 60th season.
Experience dancers Erak Mith, from Phnom Penh, Cambodia and Aaron Lim, from Darwin, Australia use the rituals, movement styles and language of their shared hip-hop culture. Between Tiny Cities រវាងទីក្រុងតូច reveals the dramatically different worlds that surround them and the choreographic links that unite them.
Choreographed by internationally-renowned Australian hip-hop dance artist Nick Power and accompanied by the beats and sound design of Jack Prest, the work blends the raw, wild energy of b*boy battles with skilful improvisation and choreography, offering a cross-cultural perspective on style, culture and locality.
The project is the result of a four-year dance exchange between Darwin’s D*City Rockers and Cambodia’s Tiny Toones youth program. The two crews have travelled, trained, battled and performed together, and Between Tiny Cities រវាងទីក្រុងតូច, is the culmination of that exchange.
Get up close and personal to the action! The performance takes place inside a 10m diameter circular space and the audience is invited to stand around the edge.
Post-show discussion on Friday 6 May.
Between Tiny Cities is presented as part of the UK/Australia Season 2021-22, a major programme of cultural exchange taking place across the two nations.
