CONFLUX. A new performance piece directed by Jenna Lee and Shlomo that combines beatboxing with dance. Both dancers and beatboxers become one solid unit, with all the music created live onstage and all the performers moving together as one.
Jenna and award-winning beatboxer Shlomo collaborate to create a brand new performance piece, that combines beatboxing with dance. Their vision is to bring together the two disciplines to create a new unified approach – a performance where both dancers and beatboxers become one solid unit, with the music created live onstage and the performers moving as one.
Jenna collaborated with record breaking human beatboxer and World Loopstation Champion Shlomo, and Reeps One, 2x UK Beatbox Champion. Beatbox Ballet was a short collaborative piece, fusing together the incredible beatboxers with English National Ballet's Emerging Dancer of 2013, Nancy Osbaldeston. The performance was held at London Wonderground, Southbank Centre, 9th July 2013
Jenna and Shlomo's initial experiment involved 3 performers: one ballerina, one beatboxer and one breakdancer. They are looking to develop a full production with more dancers and vocalists, so watch this space!
