Two dancers circle, gaze firmly fixed on each other. Erak Mith from Phnom Penh and Aaron Lim from Darwin use rituals and hip-hop culture language to lend visibility to the differences in their lives’ realities. At the same time, the connections between them become clear. “Between Tiny Cities”, by renowned Australian hip-hop dancer and choreographer Nick Power, thrives on the raw and wild energy in breakdance battles and virtuosic improvisations. The duet offers a personal perspective on dance styles, culture and origin, accompanied by Jack Prest’s driving, yet never dominating beats.
Duration: 40 Min.
Please note: There is no seating during the performance.
