In New Delhi's Khirki village a group of hip-hop dancers, consisting mostly of young boys, use the lawn of a mall for their show and practice pad. Armed with smart phones, their bodies are their only prop. They have a 20-minute window, when a change of guards takes place, to practice their art in guerilla fashion.

B-boying and Breaking started in New York among African American and Latin American youth and spread across disenfranchised youth across the world including many living in Mumbai's Dharavi and Delhi's Khirki village, a volatile melting pot of Jats, Biharis. Nigerians and Afghanis. Documentary film-makers Samreen Farooqui and Shabani Hassanwalia, worked over a period of time with these street artists trying to understand their art form from their perspective. What attracts them to B-boying and Breaking? What are its economic and social ramifications? How does it help shape and assert their identities, and the identity of a village community in an urban space? How do they negotiate the ubiquitous internet technology that liberates them and oppresses them at the same time?

Come watch this fascinating film for rich insights into an exciting performance of resistance! Meet the film makers and engage in a Q&A after the screening.

Gali has been supported by a grant from India Foundation for the Arts (IFA).

Searching Cultures is a bi-monthly series of cultural research by Studio Tamaasha and India Foundation for the Arts.

#PerformingResistance is their second session of the series.

Free and open to all.
