Centenary Square


Welcome to KRE8! one of the leading experimental dance contest in the UK. This year we’re presenting our first ever solo concept battle!

Guided by our hosts, 8 guest dancers will go head to head to the sound of a live band and a DJ, following various creative tasks and showcasing their best movement and creative abilities, only one winner will take the KRE8! Battle crown 2021.

KRE8! is an event curated by Marso Riviere, originally created and hosted as part of B-Side Hip Hop Festival since 2016. Originally set as a 2vs2 Bonnie and Clyde (mixed gender e.g. Male and/or Female and/or Trans identified gender) dance battle contest set as a Live Lab and open to any style under the street dance umbrella and beyond, open to all ages, live music is a crucial part of the event as well as a DJ warming up the audience and filling in intervals.

From small origins, it has now grown to an international scale with guest dancers from UK and abroad invited to compete.

KRE8! celebrates 6 years in the making in September 2021! Since the Covid19 regulations and pandemic, we have created various online video contests and unique programs, streaming short dance films and interviews with leaders in the Experimental Dance scene like Drosha (Open Your Mind).
