Application DEADLINE NOV 1st: OPEN ART SURGERY – a Hip-Hop Theatre Workshop with Jonzi D and Crazy Smooth -FREE!
Breakin’ Convention and Harbourfront Centre know Toronto has a wealth of Hip Hop talent. We also recognize there is a lack of quality professional development opportunities available. We are proud to offer Hip Hop artists/crews a unique opportunity to develop theatrical skills. Participants will work with dance theatre heavyweights, Jonzi D and Crazy Smooth for one week of mentoring, experimenting and devising new work that culminates in a public performance.
Who is it for?
You don’t need to have any previous theatrical experience but you should have a solid understanding of your own Hip Hop discipline (dance, rap, dj, beatbox etc). The course is designed to explore ways of approaching choreography, story-telling, direction and staging. We aim to give you the means to create theatre from fresh, new angles without losing the essence of what you do.
Breakin’ Convention is committed to the elevation of Hip Hop theatre and believe this is a valuable opportunity for even the most accomplished Hip Hop artists.
