About The Masterclass Leader:
Nick Power is a Sydney based B*boy and Choreographer whose work draws on the rituals and culture of hip hop to create contemporary performances. His practice spans from remote Aboriginal communities in the desert to the stages of the most prestigious contemporary dance festivals in Europe. Crossing complex divides of place, culture, language and form is Nick’s forté. He grew his skills in the Australian hip hop scene through dance battles and shows before going on to create performances for some of Australia’s most celebrated companies including Tracks Dance and Stalker Theatre. In 2012 Nick was the recipient of the Australia Council dance residency at the Cite International Des Arts in Paris. This residency, alongside his time in the remote Aboriginal community of Lajamanu, inspired his first full length independent work - Cypher. Based on a hip hop dance ritual, the work premiered at Darwin Festival in 2014 and has since toured to major European dance festivals and throughout Australia including Sydney Festival, Sydney Opera House, Tanz Im August (Berlin) and URB Festival (Helsinki). Following this came Between Tiny Cities - a duet between a dancer from Darwin and a dancer from Phnom Penh, developed over three years through a cross cultural hip hop exchange between Australia and Cambodia. It Premiered at Dance Massive 2017 with seasons in Phnom Penh, Darwin Festival, APAM and Hong Kong Arts Festival. The work toured through Asia and Europe in 2018 and was nominated for a Green Room Award and an Australian Dance Award. Nick’s latest work Two Crews - a collaboration with Lady Rocks Crew (Paris) and Riddim Nation (Sydney) was commisioned through the Majoir Festival Initiative and premiered at Sydney Festival in 2020 followed by Adelaide Festival. Nick was the founder and Artistic Director of Platform Hip Hop Festival, produced by Carriageworks and was the Curator of Contemporary Dance at Campbelltown Arts Centre from 2016 - 2018. NIck is a 2018 Sidney Myer Fellow.
