This autumn, Breakin’ Convention presents Borderline, the stunning piece by genre-splicing duo Sébastien Ramirez and Honji Wang, from Company Wang Ramirez.

Fusing breaking and contemporary dance, Wang and Ramirez take to the stage with their company of six performers. Toying with the forces of gravity through a subtle and sophisticated use of rigging, they create a powerful evening of breathtaking movement, physical energy and spiritual serenity.

With nods to ballet and martial arts, Wang’s style merges with hip hop, while B-boy Ramirez is celebrated for his subtle style and unique choreographic touch. With a desire for encounters and an aim for experimentation, together they create astonishing original work inspired by their different cultural backgrounds. The duo has won the New York Bessie award as Outstanding Performers for their appearance at Breakin’ Convention in New York.

Arrive early for DJ Billy Biznizz of Tha En4cers playing hip hop, soul and funk for a dancers’ freestyle circle from 6pm.

"Dazzling and profound"
