Description Break The Fight! I was here is a thematic performance that deals with power games and power struggles. The piece evokes some of the following questions: What separates us? What brings us together? What exactly do weakness and strength mean? What does it take to become oneself and to be oneself? The performance is about daring to be oneself and to accept each other the way we are. We all share the same emotions.
We may look different, speak different languages and have different beliefs but could being different also be a possibility?

Styles of the performance include elements from street
culture such as b-boying AKA breaking and rapping spiced
with contemporary dance and video animation.
