Pervez: Live 2 Break

This mini documentary retraces a lifetime of b-boy foundation movements by looking at London pioneer Pervez from the legendary crew Live 2 Break. Watching him dance today is a history lesson in bboy foundation and a rare example of the beauty of a lifetime of dedication to a craft.

I've learned more about the dance from him in the past 4 years than I have since I started back in 1999. When I first moved to London we became fast friends, and I quickly realized that he was one of the most knowledgeable and skilled bboys on the planet. I decided it was about time to let the rest of the culture know about this guy, in the hopes that he will inspire others as much as he has inspired me and my 7$ crewmates.
