Information

A thrilling double bill of hip hop contemporary dance commissioned by DanceXchange, The Place and Artists 4 Artists.

One to watch in the Hip Hop dance theatre scene, Crabs in a Barrel uses choreographer Jamaal O’Driscoll’s signature Breakin’ style to explore themes of toxic masculinity. Three dancers with a range of movement specialisms, alongside a bespoke sound score – using spoken word that has been inspired by research & interviews with black creatives in the Midlands.

Happyendingfication is a new autobiographical solo performed by Hip Hop dance theatre maker and director Yami Löfvenberg, uncovering the marginalised conversation around the impacts of being an adult adoptee.  It explores trauma, stigmatization, identity and the media’s damaging portrayal of adoption. Löfvenberg’s work often tackles hard-hitting subjects with a thought-provoking darkly comedic lens using multidisciplinary artforms.
