Braincandies Large Live
May 5 @ 20:30 - 23:00Euro15
Do you remember the popular Braincandies from years back? They were wonderful events where many interesting topics were covered and a lot of fun was had. They are back for one time (for now) with Braincandies Large Live as a part of the Urban Dance Days.
Braincandies is a speaker event where people from different backgrounds interact with each other in a creative way, while sharing their opinions on important topics.
The Resilience of HipHop Culture
This Braincandies Live session is dedicated to the theme “The Resilience of HipHop Culture.” Over the past 50 years, HipHop culture has endured, with each generation building on the foundations laid by the previous one. It’s important for us as a community to work together to support each other and pass on knowledge and skills to future generations of dancers. The resilience of HipHop dance culture speaks to the power of community and inspires us to continue to grow, overcome challenges, and make progress as a culture. We invite 5 inspiring speakers to share their stories with the audience.
The evening program consists of 5 talks of approximately 10 minutes each, with interactive activities between each talk. The program and talks will be in English.
Ryan “Future” Webb – The Driving Force: Tradition Bearing in Street Dance Culture
Ryan Webb, a dancer with years of experience in various dance forms, embarked on a mission to connect with people and communities of origin. He learned the importance of being a Tradition Bearer through mentorship and realized the need for a full commitment to culture, community, and people.
Join Ryan as he takes you on a journey through his life, dance, culture, and lifestyle.

At Braincandies large Live, the audience is also an active participant, making this a group effort rather than a task solely on the shoulders of the speakers.
