38 Cypher Win­ners will Com­pete for a Spot in the World Fi­nal C-Sick to Ja­pan for the fi­nal of Red Bull BC One

Kuwait Times - - WHAT’S ON -

Red Bull BC One Cypher World Fi­nal is re­turn­ing to Ja­pan on De­cem­ber 3, this time in the in­cred­i­ble city of Nagoya, the coun­try’s third largest city and a bustling hub for Hip Hop. B-Boy C-Sick will be join­ing six­teen of the best B-Boys on the planet will go head-to-head in knock­out bat­tles to de­ter­mine who will be the one. The event will be broad­cast live on Red Bull TV.

As Red Bull BC One en­tered its 13th year, big changes marked the year. In or­der to open up the event year-round to the wider com­mu­nity, the six re­gional Fi­nals were re­placed with Red Bull BC One Camps all over the world as an at­tempt to go back to the core of what break­ing is all about: cul­ture. The World Fi­nal will once again be in­vi­ta­tion only, with the ex­cep­tion of one name to be de­ter­mined by a Last Chance Cypher where all cypher win­ners through­out the year will com­pete for one open spot that will con­clude the line-up.

This Last Chance Cypher will rep­re­sent an in­cred­i­ble cul­tural ex­change, as B-Boys will come in from all over the world to prove their skills on the dance floor and bat­tle in an at­tempt to earn that one cov­eted spot on the ul­ti­mate stage. The win­ner will com­pete in the World Fi­nal along­side a line-up of Wild Card en­tries, cho­sen by an in­ter­na­tional team of B-Boy ex­perts.

Last year, mil­lions of spec­ta­tors tuned in from around the world to see USA’s Vic­tor take the belt in Rome. Each year the stakes be­come higher and the com­pe­ti­tion tougher, as break­ers con­tinue to evolve the art form. It will be an un­be­liev­able week of events not to be missed. Kuwaiti win­ner b-boy C-Sick was part of last year’s bat­tle; the in­cred­i­bly tal­ented break-dancer has won the Na­tional Cypher three times in a row in 2014, 2015 and 2016!

“I can­not be­lieve I was able to make it again this year! I am ex­tremely ex­cited to bat­tle against the best b-boys from all around the world for the third time,” said bboy C-Sick.
