Human Collective , in partnership with Dance Ireland, present the Dance2Connect International Lab. D2C LAB aims to provide a space for the intersection of street and contemporary dance styles to spark ideas and create new performance work.
With an emphasis on intergenerational exchange, inclusion and diversity, the D2C International Lab and Festival creates opportunities for young artists, from a variety of creative backgrounds, who may not otherwise engage with theatre spaces or professional arts organisations
This year’s guest international artist is Lisa Berman and BRKFST company.
Join us for an explosive performance from Minnesota (US) based Breakers - BRKFST Dance Company. The dancers will be joined by D2C LAB participants in a dynamic cross collaboration of Contemporary and Street Dance Theatre, led by choreographers Lisa Berman and Joseph Tran.
New Movements are an opportunity for dance artists to present their work and receive feedback. Our 'New Movements' are informal, no tech, studio platform for work in its developmental stages - 'fresh from the studio'.

About BRKFST Dance Company
BRKFST Dance Company is a St.Paul/Minneapolis-based performance arts collective founded in 2014.
As a collaborative ensemble, BRKFST creates thoughtful, dynamic, introspective works combining highly physical breaking movement and contemporary dance vernacular to expand awareness on topics that address marginalized and underserved populations: the working class, queer identity, BIPOC identity, and their personal relationships to this country. BRKFST Dance Company articulates the lived experience of diverse and contemporary artists, contests society's expectations of their chosen form by placing breaking in unconventional environments, and complicates the medium of dance itself by incorporating abstract, narrative, and pedestrian movement into their impressive, rigorous, physically virtuosic compositions.
BRKFST teaches and performs in schools, libraries, museums, and concert dance venues, premiering work at the Walker Arts Center, Southern Theater, and Cowles Center. Their film “Dreamers” was deemed an official selection in ten international film festivals, receiving multiple accolades for Best Experimental Film and Grand Jury Award.
This is a free event but booking is required.
