BETWEEN TINY CITIES រវាងទីក្រុងតូច by Nick Power
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, the work blends the raw, wild energy of b*boy battles with skilful improvisation and choreography, offering a cross-cultural perspective on style, culture and locality.
The project is the result of a four-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, and Between Tiny Cities រវាងទីក្រុងតូច, is the culmination of that exchange.
This encounter of the dancers from Cambodia and Australia will be closing the ASEM Cultural Festival, as a hint to the next edition which will take place in Cambodia.
