Startin' Point is an exciting brand new festival curated by Hakeem “Mr Impact” which celebrates the connection between music and dance from the African Diaspora.
Sounds and rhythms from Africa have been moving us for generations. Blues, Reggae, Jazz, Funk, Disco, Hip-Hop, House.
Our bodies have responded very differently to these various genres of music, creating extremely rich and diverse movement vocabulary.
Over three days Startin' Point will showcase work that honours the African heritage. It will celebrate the contribution of national and international artists to this legacy and encourage the youth to find their voice and push the boundaries of expression.
