T-Break is an outdoor 20-minute promenade, site-specific dance performance for adult and family audiences featuring live music.

In T-Break, two worlds collide: four Bboys (breakdancers) are called by the beat of the Tabla.

From different corners, they work and weave and stop and start travelling through [location] and meeting in a central celebration of the vision and energy of the city.

The show is a playful, humorous and dynamic celebration of cultural diversity.

It features a collaboration between award-winning choreographer, Mickael ‘Marso’ Riviere, three Bboys fromrenowned breakin collective Mad Dope Kru (MDK) and one of the UK’s leading Tabla players,Mendi Singh.

Expect a beautiful culture clash.
