Breaksession® Bboy Battle is a break-dance event unique in Kenya.

Founded in 2005, the event had its first public edition in July 2011 and very quickly became a success story. It is now officially in its second year and will for the first time feature dancers from all over the country. Created and developed by Joe Nene (a.k.a. Bboy Kay/BreakDjKay) the goal is to spark the Bboy Revolution in Kenya and bring a realization ofBboy/Breaking as one of the elements of Hip-Hop.

Joe Nene, started dancing 18 years ago inspired by the lateMichael Jackson, as well as Usher, Ginuwine, the late Aaliyah, and Missy Eliott. Ever since, he has continuously dreamt of what he has now achieved! An event which would make it possible for Bboysto battle, compare and work with others who have similar skills and want to share them.
He and his crew, The B.B.O.Y Squad will organise this event which aims to have Kenyan breakdance recognised internationally and take it to the next level!

The dance work will be enriched by the imagery of the internationally acclaimed video artist Lillevan (co-founder of Rechenzentrum). The idea of this production is to break the borders of space and concepts, to surprise and challenge the audience as well as the performers.

The dance workshop will culminate in two dance performances.
