Two remarkable female performers train for Australia’s biggest street dance competition in this tale of love, obsession and the transformative power of performance.
On Sydney’s urban fringe, two young women battle for a better life in the underground world of competitive street dance. Patricia, Romanian-born and hanging out for a visa, is a breakdancer. Gabi, of Chilean-Samoan heritage, pops with power. Both dream of escaping the rough hand they’ve been dealt. Will a win at Australia’s biggest dance competition Destructive Steps – in which 60 contestants compete in the preliminary rounds - be their golden ticket? Or will the external pressures of financial hardship and volatile relationships stop them from even reaching the dancefloor? Director Luke Cornish spent seven years filming the women’s progress. Waiting to see how they fare will have you on the edge of your seat.
Celebrate the film with an event at The Hub: Keep Stepping: Break Out
featuring a showcase of street dancing, complete with MC and DJ on Friday 10 Jun at 8pm.
