Sydney Festival presents


Venue Riverside Theatre
Dates 19 January - 24 January 2016


Funky footwork, rocking rhythms, Cypher is a supple symphony of movement by four battle-hardened b*boys.

A raw celebration of hip-hop culture, Cypher is your chance to share the space with ultra-skilful (not to mention ultra-competitive) dancers as they thrash it out, pushing the boundaries of movement in a dazzling blur of limbs and trainers.

Australian hip-hop heavyweight and director Nick Power puts the crew through its motions while the booming beats of sound designer Jack Prest set a mean pace. If Cypher was any more in your face, it’d leave bruises.

Choreography by: Nick Power
