Flex is Kings - Prime Video | Thespie

A riveting look at Brooklyn street dancers battling for supremacy in the world of 'flexing.' This dance style - forged in far east Brooklyn - channels the grittiness and crime of East New York, involving choreographed violence with gun movements, simulated bone-breaking, and the mimicked ripping of hearts from opponent's chests. Through battles dancers gain respect, craft an artistic identity, and sometimes find a sanctuary from the poverty and violence that saturates their neighbourhood. No other style of street-dance is this violent, scary, or beautifully theatrical. Following a group of dancers for over two years, Flex is Kings explores the hopes and realities of this under-acknowledged and totally unfunded group of urban artists.
