Even though originally coming from breakdance, Joseph Simon also has a fascination for ballet. His first solo Third Culture Kid was the start of an ongoing research into what Joseph identifies as a ‘third culture space’ combining ballet with amongst others housedance and breakdance. Last summer he created a third culture space for himself and three three brilliant bboys; Conni, Kid Colombia and Tawfiq.
Bboys x Ballet Variation is a short documentary about the exploration of a ballet solo interpreted by Conni, Kid Colombia and Tawfiq. The research was initiated by Joseph Simon and filmed in the summer of 2021. The footage was edited into a short documentary by Conny Tromlitz. You can watch it here between December 24 and January 6th.
