In Between Tiny Cities រវាងទីក្រុងតូច, dancers Erak Mith from Phnom Penh and Aaron Lim from Darwin use the rituals, movement styles and language of their shared hip-hop culture to reveal the dramatically different worlds that surround them and uncover the choreographic links that unite them.

Phnom Penh and Darwin are very different cities – but there is one strong style that unites them. The dancers blend the raw, powerful and sometimes aggressive energy of b-boy battles with elegant improvisation and choreography. Always aware of each other’s presence, always staying focused on the other, the dancers are locked in a fierce competition and yet at the same time are a partnership, a team.

Between Tiny Cities រវាងទីក្រុងតូច is choreographed by internationally-renowned hip-hop artist Nick Power and accompanied by the beats and sound design of Jack Prest. The project is the result of a four-year dance exchange between Darwin’s D*City Rockers and Cambodia’s Tiny Toones youth programme. The two crews have travelled, trained, battled and performed together, and Between Tiny Cities រវាងទីក្រុងតូច, is the culmination of that exchange.
