Created by some of the most exciting up-and-coming dance artists working today, 1000 Pieces Puzzle is the culmination of an international exchange programme of the same name, showcasing a series of live dance collaborations and brand new dance films.

These scratch performances have been created by 30 artists from both the UK and Belgium during a 12-day period of working together in Brussels and London to explore technique, choreography and dance film whilst developing entrepreneurial and leadership skills.

With influences from Afrobeats, Dancehall, Krump, House, Hip Hop, Contemporary and more, this unique evening promises to be a vibrant and explosive showcase of some of the most expressive dance styles around.
