B-Side #2



B-Side #2

Research and development laboratory, symposium and training for street dancers.

B-SIDE is a three-part event dedicated to thinking, training, and researching in street dance.

‘B-Side’, in Hip-Hop terms, refers to the backside of a vinyl record. Many have found lost gems, remixes, live cuts as well as limited editions! B-SIDE provides a stimulating platform that facilitates greater cultural exchange, and more focused exploration and insight into choreographic development for street dance, overall.

  • Research and development laboratory for street dancers from June 28th to July 9th:

For two weeks, the experimental lab research allows 8 artists to explore an embryonic idea in studio before presenting it in an informal setting. B-SIDE allows free reign as to choices and artistic orientations. Mentors will be on hand to give advice and orientation to artists.

  • Webcast Symposium, presented par Diagramme, July 3rd and 4th:

Open to all online, and over the course of 2 days, the Symposium brings together top-level pros from the world of street dance and Hip-Hop making for a lively forum on the current state of the art form.
