7 Apr 2021

This month’s I Mover is Jonzi D the founder of Breakin’ Convention! Jonzi has triumphed in raising the profile and giving a platform to hip hop disciplines, which has gained him worldwide recognition as being at the vanguard of the development of the art form. Through professional development projects Open Art Surgery and Back to the Lab, Jonzi has supported hundreds of hip hop dance and rap / poetry artists on their journey to creating theatre. Jonzi takes time to speak to us about lockdown projects, his reaction film to George Floyd’s murder and the opportunities he is currently working on to promote artists in Dance of the African Diaspora.
