  • Sony Centre for the Performing Arts 1 Front Street East Toronto, ON, M5E 1B2 Canada (map)

The world’s biggest festival of hip hop dance theatre, showcasing the very best from around the world and around the corner, is coming to Canada for the first time. Curated and hosted by UK hip hop pioneer Jonzi D, this awe inspiring weekend features exceptional performances from world champion b-boy and b-girl crews to cutting edge street dance companies. Headline programming includes two evening main stage performances featuring some of Canada’s best hip-hop companies – Juxtapose, LockUnity, and RoyaLazyness – and Toronto’s own Footnotes, JHHA Performance Company, Involuntary Movement, Tense Image, and The Surgeons performing alongside renowned international acts Just Dance (South Korea), Soweto Skeleton Movers (South Africa), and BirdGang Dance Company (UK) on the Sony Centre stage. Programming will continue to be updated.

Spilling off stage and taking over the whole building, the Sony Centre lobbies and surrounding areas will be transformed with DJs, Cypher Floors, graffiti, artexhibits, free-style sessions, and workshops from top international and local artists. It’s an unforgettable experience for the whole family.
