Everyone’s welcomed to check out this special No Limits Battle, where ILL-Abilities, an international all-star breakdance crew comprising differently-abled dancers, battle with some of the best homegrown break-dancers in Singapore.
Conceptualised by ILL-Abilities, the rule of this exhibition battle is simple—dancers spin a wheel labelled with constraints and aids, think out of the box, and faceoff! The message is simple yet powerful: injuries may happen to anyone and any dancer, but you are stronger than you imagine; believe in yourself and create opportunities from challenges.
Drawing inspiration from hip hop culture, the “ill” in ILL-Abilities does not mean “sick” or “unwell”. Rather, it refers to something positive, in this instance the incredible talent and dance abilities of the crew. The dancers of ILL-Abilities strive to inspire others and spread positive thinking through their optimistic attitudes, personal stories and unique dance moves.
This programme is presented as part of da:ns focus – EveryBody, a weekend of dance with inclusivity, diversity and participation, where we encourage everybody and every body to experience dance.
