This is street dance like you’ve never seen before! This exciting triple bill, Dance Mixtape, features a collection of street dance theatre works by international and Singapore artists, each with its own unique creative approach and concept. Selected for curious beginners and connoisseurs alike, these works will inspire you with its different expressions of street dance theatre, a genre that continues to evolve.
Exploring the concept of adaptability, The Ruggeds (The Netherlands) pushes the boundaries of breaking with Waterbrothers; Spoken Movement (United Kingdom) incorporates languages such as krump and hip hop for theatrical ends at the award-winning work Family Honour; and Stirring Ground (Singapore) is specially commissioned by Esplanade to create a new work, investigating notions of resilience and inter-dependence.
Street dance theatre, also known as hip hop theatre, is a genre that emerged in the 1990s, blending street dance with theatrical elements and structures. With street dance and street culture elements such as breaking, hip hop, DJ-ing and beatboxing as its core, works of street dance theatre embrace a diversity of contemporary creative approaches, often with a focus exploration of a particular idea, content or form.
Dance Mixtape is part of da:ns focus – FL/OW (The FULL OUT Weekend), which invites you to celebrate the diverse facets of street dance and its culture over three days of exciting performances, workshops, battles and parties! Having grown from its humble beginnings as FULL OUT! street dance showcase in 2019, you won’t want to miss this jam-packed weekend with high-energy showcases and experimental works by world-renowned dance crews, emerging and seasoned local choreographers, all demonstrating what street dance can be beyond the conventional.
