Breakin’ Convention is an international hip-hop theatre festival based in London, England that was founded in 2004 and is produced annually by Sadler's Wells Theatre. It has been under the artistic direction of playwright and dancer Jonzi D since its inception. Since May 2008 Breakin’ Convention has expanded its activity beyond the three day festival to include tours across the UK. There are also plans to create Breakin’ Convention "Hubs" to develop and commission work with local hip-hop artists, and to produced year-round professional development courses for UK based hip-hop choreographers, artists, and dance/theatre companies.
