The Archetype will be showcasing in a debut performance at Breakin’ Convention 2019 on Saturday 4th May at Sadler’s Wells.

Breakin’ Convention is the UK’s biggest festival of hip hop dance theatre. Curated by hip hop theatre pioneer Jonzi D, Breakin’ Convention is world-renowned for its representation of the origins and evolution of hip hop culture from around the world and remains one of the most prestigious platforms for dance theatre globally. True to form, this year’s festival promises a line-up of exceptional dance talent from the UK and beyond, with international companies hailing from Spain, France and Germany to South Korea and the US.

The Archetype’s debut performance at the annual event will mark the fourth instalment in a conceptual journey through nature’s elements. ‘Water’, ‘Earth’ and ‘Fire’ – a trilogy of pieces preceding the upcoming premiere – delve deeply into the nature and state of our world; challenging conceptions of our humanity and existence whilst pushing the boundaries present in our own understanding of our relationship with the planet.

Breakin’ Convention is part of world-leading dance house Sadler’s Wells. Together, Breakin’ Convention and Sadler’s Wells create a place where artists come together to make work and where people of all ages and from all walks of life come to experience dance.
