With live streams and pre-recorded material this is definitely one to stick in your calendars and all from the comfort of your own/ work/ coffee shop/ neighbours wifi.

‘You’ll just feel a sharp scratch’
Performed by Alex Mechanikool, and inspired by real events, FINEST is a scripted dance-theatre solo exploring the possibilities of what might happen when what you thought defined you, is taken away.
Fly No Filter enjoyed an intense development period exploring the shared themes of death and what it means to be alive in the lead up to the festival, with a focus on heritage UK Poppin’ techniques. Superheroes and karate. Dairylee dunkers – or whatever they’re called.
Creative team: Performance artists | James Therobot and Alex Mechanikool; Artwork | NonSINthetik; Music support | Lady B Fine; Camera | Mr Margaret Scratcher; Photography | Mitzi de Margary; and Consultancy | Mach-1
We have been creating work for theatre since 2000. SIN Cru Theatre as a touring company, was established in 2005 with the aims of extending the boundaries of Bboyin as an artform, and introducing new audiences to Hip Hop. SIN Cru uses bboyin and hip hop movement styles integrated with beatboxing, live music and spoken word to create narrative dance theatre.
In addition to three Arts Council England-supported tours, the company has presented work at The Place, Stratford Circus and Sadler’s Wells in London, The Festival Theatre in Edinburgh, and at dance theatre platforms including Breakin’ Convention, Move It and B.Supreme.
“Vibrant, irrepressible performance art of the highest quality” – http://www.londondance.com
In 2015, SIN Cru Theatre became Fly No Filter and continues to embrace collaborations with artists from other dance forms and disciplines including drama, physical theatre, music and film, in order to define, reinterpret and extend the boundaries of bBoyin as a performing art.
