More about Live Vibe
Live Vibe is an original concept which was performed for the first time at Sadler’s Wells. It offers a rare opportunity for young artistes from the worlds of dance, music, spoken word and beyond to present work in a professional environment during the early stages of their careers, as well as the invaluable experience of performing in a top London arts venue alongside established professional companies.
Created by Hakeem “Mr Impact” Onibudo, it showcases the UK's hottest raw dance talent in an inspirational, interactive atmosphere and ,with the support of trained mentors, helps them take their craft to the next level.
LIVE VIBE UK
Live Vibe began in the UK in 2009 at Sadler's Wells. Starting with its theme of ELEMENTS, it soon became a popular live interactive show gaining Arts Council funding in 2010. This allowed the Live Vibe at the Movies series to be produced at the Lilian Baylis Studio. The four shows culminated in a fifth show at the Peacock theatre in January 2011, featuring the four finalists of the LBS series performing alongside street dance giants, Flawless. Live Vibe UK are currently creating an exciting 2012-2013 series.
LIVE VIBE INTERNATIONAL
Live Vibe made its international debut in December 2010 at the Hong Kong Academy of Performing Arts. Live Vibe Hong Kong was produced in partnership with Fake Frog Productions, following on from the vision of CEO Jessica Hefes. This interactive show featured dance acts, companies and performing arts schools from Hong Kong, all fused with live bands and audience participation. It was presented in dual language form, featuring Hong Kong's very own actor and street dancer, Deegor, and the creator of Live Vibe, Hakeem "Mr Impact".
