To kick-off the event, Australian b-boy and choreographer Nick Power will share about his practice, where he expands on the vocabulary of street dance to create full-length contemporary works and foster intercultural dialogues and collaborations.


This talk is open to all by registration, and we particularly welcome street dance choreographers and dancers who wish to broaden their existing approaches to dance.
