Between Tiny Cities is a fascinating and captivating physical dialogue exploring the collision of two different cultures.
Performed by two dancers – Erak Mith from Phnom Penh, Cambodia and Aaron Lim from Darwin, Lancashire – Between Tiny Cities uses the choreographic language of hip hop movement to explore the cultural similarities and differences between the two performers.
Choreographed by internationally-renowned Sydney hip-hop dance artist Nick Power and accompanied by the beats and sound design of Jack Prest, the work blends the raw, wild energy of B-Boy battles with skillful improvisation and choreography. The resulting piece offers a cross-cultural perspective on style, culture and locality.
This performance is the culmination of a four-year dance exchange between Darwin’s D-City Rockers and Cambodia’s Tiny Toones Youth Program. During the project, the two crews have travelled, trained, battled and performed together. Between Tiny Cities is the result of that exchange – catch it at Contact.
