The World + Event is a 3-hour participatory movement showing at Brunswick Mechanics. We welcome you to the universe of World + and invite you to participate, and/or witness this journey unfold.

Welcome onboard to the World + capsule:
→ The World + Event comes from street dance battles but not a battle
→ The World + Event is a game
→ The World + Event chooses your own adventure
→ The World + Event cultivates curiosity and trial-and-error with care

Hosted by MaggZ, David Prakash and Oliver Le and supported by the World + focus group and mentors – The World + Event foregrounds a multisensory approach, to explore and unpack the essences of street dance battles and the notion of world-building as the underpinning conceptual framework. The World + Event is the culmination of the co-design and lab processes.

World + is a series of conversations, development, and in-person events aiming to reimagine and reconceptualise the notion of ‘battles’ within the street dance culture based in Melbourne, curated by Producer in Residence MaggZ. Through the process of co-designing with industry peers, mentors and active community members aged between 18 ~ 25 from the street dance sector, this program aspires to shine light on the voice of the youth and to investigate the current complexities within the battle culture, as well as to extend the infrastructure and modality of ‘battles’ with the notion of world-building whilst honouring the socio-political context and the history of street dance.

The Producer in Residence and Creative Leadership programs are generously supported by VicHealth through their Future Healthy initiatives.
