HIP-HOP DANCE IN CAMBODIA: Rom Bak Battle

Idea-concept-eng-1507088247

 

What-is-rom-bak-1507088365

 

Rom Bak is the first Hip Hop competition/show (event) in Cambodia where local dancers can test their levels by competing with international dancers.

It was born in 2013,  created by Bboy Peanut (Massive Monkees), Vibol Lim (France) and B. Girl Melski (Australian Hip Hop dancer)  in this form well known in the world and for the 1st time in Cambodia:

- 2 disciplines of hip-hop dance

- a jury made up of recognized professionnals in the world of hip-hop dance

- a money prize and many gifts for the winners and the finalists

- a fundraising during the event for Tiny Toones Cambodia NGO

- FREE workshops for the Tiny Toones NGO's kids with the judges

 

This new project for this year of 2017 arose from the meeting of professional dancers and enthusiasts of urban dance, who wished to give a visibility to the Cambodian artistic scene and to its urban culture.

 

After organizing already 5 Rom Bak events, many people wanted more ! The Hip Hop performers and spectators were searching for a gathering in Phnom Penh that was Hip Hop like anywhere else around the world. 

The Rom Bak team and their partners want to put this event in another level, develop this event on a larger scale within the ASEAN countries, and to create vocations on a professional and artistic level.

Rom Bak will take place on SATURDAY 23 December at PONTOON, one of the biggest club in Cambodia, in the heart of Phnom Penh. Heaps of artistic performances will follow one another : breakdance, poppin’, rap and beatbox…

Pontoon has resourcefully pioneered the way in Cambodia with introducing Internationally renowned World Class live acts and DJs (Cut Killer, Grand Master Flash, Diplo, Daddy K...) to an eager Khmer audience who come to experience sights and sounds hitherto unheard and unseen in Cambodia. Managed by DJ ILLEST, the co-owner.

Many artistic performances will follow one another:

2 vs 2 of breakdance, all style dance, singers showcase, choreographic artist groups and local DJs will be honored during the event.

The main focus will be the « Battle » rounds, during which professional dancers and Hip Hop savvy will compete.

 

Rom Bak is foremost a time to gather people sharing the same passion.

The event features free entrances so that everyone can take part in this initiative.

Further than throwing artistic performances, we look forward to federate a strong Hip Hop community where everyone can step in regardless their social background.

 

 

 

Who-is-the-team-1507088678

 

 

The Rom Bak team gathers various folks all passionate about urban culture, with backgrounds in dance, music, or non profit and cultural project management.

Creating-social-ties-1507089075

 

Cambodia is an emerging market  with strong social divisions, housing a lot of unpriviledged kids. Rom Bak aims at gathering young people around a fun and engaging medium such as urban dance, creating social ties between them regardless their social background.

Rom Bak participants come across various provinces, and have the opportunity to develop their artistic skills, showcase their talents, and open themselves new perspectives in this way

 

 

Achievement-1507089196

 

Our team has already organized 5 events with the support of Meta House (3 events), german cultural center located in Phnom Penh and the Slur Bar (2 events). This first step allowed us to confirm how eager people were to see this initiative growing, as the events gathered up to 43 dancers and around 70 spectators at Meta House and more than 300 spectators at the Slur Bar. The positive feedbacks received so far reinforced our will to keep growing this project.

Waar dient de collecte voor

Needs-1507089372

We’d like to take Rom Bak event to an upper level, make it more professional, and sustainable. In this regards, we’d need some funds to cover logistics, dancers rewards, and broadcasting fees.

 

Details:  

 

- Dancers support (dancers reception + drinks and food) about 100eur  

 

- Ensure long-term communication (posters, flyers, stickers, social networks), as well as all expenses upstream of the event (administrative procedures and video equipment). About 500eur  

 

- Flight tickets and accommodation of the professional team (Samuel Hak Sisowath, Zakary Peang, Vibol LIM, Rotha Tuy) which will be the main source of spending, about 2500eur.  

 

- The money prize for the winners and finalists. There will be 2 disciplines, 2 vs 2:

Breakdance: 200eur winners, 100eur finalists

All Style (popping, hip-hop, locking, house, etc ...): 200eur winners, 100eur finalists  

 

- Local artists fees (DJ + speaker + showcase of artists + unforeseen) about 450eur    

 

 

Exceed-the-first-goal-1507089473

 

- This will allow to increase the "money prize" for the dancers because they will be the ones who will do the show! The semi-finalists will also be able to get a price also.

 

Beyond the economic aspects, the hip-hop in the Cambodia does not have the same media place as it can have in France or in the United States. We participate above all to strengthen the image of a youth eager for gratitude and to prove that the talent goes much more far than the food aspect. We need (thanks to Kissbankers) to strengthen our structures and to be present as a sociocultural actor, capable of creating an unprecedented craze in the country and of developing an unpublished professional sector for the dance hip-hop in the Cambodia. 

 

 

To allow the Rom Bak Association to start its projects:

- To finance a festival planned in Paris in 2018 organized by the association Rom Bak around the urban and traditional culture of Southeast Asia.  

 

- Prepare the creation of the FIRST SOLO OF BBOY ROTHA which will be the first stone brought to a suite of artistic creation unpublished in France and in the world.  

 

- Organize another Rom Bak Battle next year even a Festival of urban culture on two days (with necessarily a more enriched artistic programming) in Cambodia and work on this event so that they can become an annual meeting. We can fill the high demand of the Cambodian youth follower of the culture hip-hop. It is possible that we can bring the winners of the previous edition in France to develop their dancing knowledge and favorize the exchanges with other artists.

 

 

The total amount of the crowdfunding will be transferred to the Rom Bak association's account.
