Azad by Lila Magnin

This battle is open to anyone, hip hop dancer or not, feeling touched by the queer community from near or far.

Excerpt from Blind by Hendrickx de Ntela (during the Afterparty)
Following an exchange on their respective cultures, Hendrickx Ntela from the second generation of immigrants in Europe, and Pierre Dexter Belleka exiled following a dictatorship, meet around the Krump to design Blind. Life paths impacted by conflict opened their eyes to the cyclicality of history and the importance of political discourse. “Blind” puts five krumpers of various origins, multiple experiences facing the same story in different places around the world.
