About

Together with Chris Wheeler, co-founder of The Heritage Orchestra, Buckley and Wheeler assemble a stellar cast to present an exhilarating, 90-minute non-stop musical exploration into ‘The Breaks’; the culture-defining music that has inspired the world of scratch DJs and breakdancing since the 1970s. Of the four pillars of hip-hop culture, alongside MC-ing, DJ-ing and graffiti art, breakdancing has developed from its original roots, taking influences from disco, funk, soul and beyond, to become a globally recognised art form. ‘The Breaks’ features performances from the UK’s very own Soul Mavericks, the award-winning crew has represented UK B-boying to the highest level, earning a reputation as one of the world’s top breaking crews and ambassadors of UK hip-hop culture.

Four times World DMC Champion, turntablist Mr Switch is noted for his versatility, party rocking and scratch skills. Powerful soul vocals come courtesy of Alice Russell, Brendan Riley and Vula Malinga. Let battle commence!...
