Between Tiny Cities រវាងទីក្រុងតូច

Presented by Arts House and ACCOMPLICE

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.

Choreographed by internationally renowned, Sydney hip hop dance artist Nick Power and accompanied by the beats and sound design of Jack Prest (Future Love Hangover). The work blends the raw, wild energy of b*boy battles with skillful improvisation and choreography, offering a cross-cultural perspective on style, culture and locality.

The project is the result of a three-year dance exchange between Darwin’s D*City Rockers and Cambodia’s Tiny Toones youth program. The two crews have travelled, trained, battled and performed together over several years and Between Tiny Cities រវាងទីក្រុងតូច is a continuation of that exchange.
