The team behind Breakin’ Convention has announced Emerge+See, a new initiative that will support the commissions of up to 12 new 15–20-minute works in hip hop dance theatre. Breakin’ Convention are calling out to hip hop dance artists across the UK who have a new idea or an existing piece that they would like to develop further for the stage.
Artists selected for commission will be paid a commission fee of up to £6,000 (depending on the size of the company) and will receive additional financial support for the production elements of the piece. Artists will be mentored throughout the project by experienced hip hop dance and theatre practitioners.
The project will run throughout 2022 and will be in four areas across the UK:
Midlands & East Anglia
South & South West
