DanceScapes – Hip Hop Nights

Tickets: €12
Show Time: 9pm

Join us for a night filled with pulsating beats, slick moves, and raw talent as we bring together the best of hip hop culture from France and Ireland under one roof.

Co-created by members of the renowned French hip hop group Collectif FAIR-E alongside trailblazing Irish hip hop artists, this is a powerhouse event not to be missed. Experience the best of local and international hip hop talent with exhilarating cyphers and a showcase of short works and video exhibitions created as part of the creative labs running throughout the week.

Live DJs will then keep you grooving all night long, giving you the chance to show off your freestyle skills and share the dance floor with hip hop stars.

Celebrating hip hop culture and French-Irish exchange, DanceScapes 2024 marks the first time that Breaking will be included in the Olympic Games (Paris 2024).

Soak up the energy of the crowd, let the rhythm take control and dance the night away with an evening that promises to be a celebration of creativity, expression and hip hop of all styles. Don’t miss out on an unforgettable night of music, dance, and community.

Biographies

Created by Bouzid Ait Atmane, Iffra Dia, Linda Hayford, Saïdo Lehlouh, and Ousmane Sy (2020), Collectif FAIR-E defends the use of doing as a way of seeing the world. Engaging with their environment through the idea of action and reaction, they aim to inject a sense of desire, poetry, fairness, imagination, joy, sharing, and commonalities. Coming together from diverse hip hop backgrounds and all these influences, the collective is rich in their differences and their respective artistic individualities. Collectif FAIR-E was appointed head of the National Choreographic Centre of Rennes and Brittany in 2019 and was reappointed for a second term until December 2025.
