“An intelligent, expressive and engaging production which gently subverts preconceptions around hip-hop and masculinity.” – Richard Watt, Arts Hub
In Between Tiny Cities រវាងទីក្រុងតូច, dancers Erak Mith from Phnom Penh and Aaron Lim from Darwin use the rituals, movement styles and language of their shared hip-hop culture to reveal the dramatically different worlds that surround them and uncover the choreographic links that unite them.
Phnom Penh and Darwin are very different cities – but there is one strong style that unites them. The dancers blend the raw, powerful and sometimes aggressive energy of b-boy battles with elegant improvisation and choreography. Always aware of each other’s presence, always staying focused on the other, the dancers are locked in a fierce competition and yet at the same time are a partnership, a team.
Between Tiny Cities រវាងទីក្រុងតូច is choreographed by internationally-renowned hip-hop artist Nick Power and accompanied by the beats and sound design of Jack Prest. The project is the result of a four-year dance exchange between Darwin’s D*City Rockers and Cambodia’s Tiny Toones youth programme. The two crews have travelled, trained, battled and performed together, and Between Tiny Cities រវាងទីក្រុងតូច, is the culmination of that exchange.
