Have you ever noticed that if you look at something through a glass of water, the object seems to change shape and place? It’s magic in plain sight, we think we see a fish somewhere in the water, but the fish is actually someplace else. When we try to catch it, it’s already gone.  

This is refraction: a lightwave breaking on a surface and changing velocity, causing us to not see what’s really there beneath the surface. Refraction can also completely change what’s above the surface, think of the moving colors of a sunset or a rainbow appearing when it rains.  

In this duet Liam McCall and Oscar Starink, two b-boys from Underdogz crew, research and dissect what it means to be a breaker and for it use a play of light to share that vision. What lies beneath the image of a b-boy, and becomes apparent when you go deep away from the surface? It’s an exploration of dance, light and themselves.  

Can they break the stereotype and just be boys?
