‘Breaking into Institutions: Hip Hop and the Olympics’ Re-presenting Europe’s showcase at this years Impact Fair.

April 5 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

We are excited to announce that we will be part of this year’s Impact Fair in Utrecht with our interactive showcase entitled ‘Breaking into Institutions: Hip Hop and the Olympics’ with co-hosts John Agesials and Tjalling Ruiten, and moderated by Isabella Hall Allen.

The showcase and panel will explore the journey of Breakdance/ Breaking from an underground subculture to an Olympic sport. Attendees will gain knowledge about the origins of this dance and explore its historical evolution. Our panelists, Tjalling Ruiten and John Agesilas, will provide insights into practical judging techniques and encourage the participants to contemplate the complexities of judging an art form that is both aesthetic and rebellious. The event begins and concludes with reflections on the institutionalization of urban arts like hip hop and breakdance and the evolving roles of scholars, practitioners, participants, and policymakers in this process.
