About Red Bull BC One 

Amsterdam Westergasfabriek hosted the world’s best B-boys to battle it out one-on-one again at the 14th edition of Red Bull BC One on November 4. The Netherlands is home to celebrated crews such as HustleKidz and The Ruggeds. In addition, BC One winner Menno was a member of the Red Bull BC One All-Stars in 2014.

This time around, BC One hopefuls go head-to-head with over 35 qualifying ciphers. And six camps to determine who makes the Amsterdam cut. The three-day camps were held in Spain, Russia, France, Turkey, Japan, and the Netherlands. Reflecting the local creative landscape with lectures, workshops, art exhibitions, club nights, and battles. All the winners will earn the chance to compete for the last open spot, just days before the hugely anticipated World Final gets broadcast to the world.

Role of Backbone

Backbone International provided a team of five people to help assist in technical production, overlay management, and overlay production.

Challenge: The room was 60m wide, which created a challenge when loading in the raised seating structure surrounding the stage. It required preparation and planning to fit the seating structure to the exact inch within the room.

Highlight: The stage was designed round. It was structurally built of three damping layers and a special top layer, which allowed the break dancers to perform their spectacular dance moves.
