SummerStage: BattleFest League Dancers / Screening: Flex is Kings
Jun 7, 2015 @ 7:00 pm| Free
Brooklyn’s own extreme dance league, Battlefest, brings its best dancers out for an impromptu live performance with the synth-pop extreme cello mixed with synthesizers, electronics and beats of Tranimal, a collaborative project of veteran dance composers Christopher Lancaster and Jerome Begin.
Flex is Kings is a riveting and awe-inspiring look inside the world of Brooklyn street dancing known as ‘flexing.’ Directors Michael Beach Nichols and Deidre Schoo take audiences along on the emotional journey of several young dancers – dancers who vie for a chance to make something of themselves by battling it out through this DIY art form.
SummerStage is the largest FREE performing arts festival in New York City We believe that by presenting artists and genres that reflect the diverse cultures and communities in neighborhood parks across the five boroughs, we help to build new audiences and foster a broader interest in the arts.
