Benjamin Allen

A Tasmanian-based artist, developing his site-specific practice from a movement background in parkour, freerunning, b-boying, contemporary dance and martial arts tricking. Benjamin’s work seeks to find site-responsive, interdisciplinary expression through his eclectic movement history, and by exploring topics in architectural theory and body politics. Benjamin also directs, facilitates and choreographs Tasmania/Queensland group Hybrid Elements; a broad collective of young contemporary dancers, hip-hop dancers, traceurs, free-runners, trickers, b-boys, musicians and tumblers. Currently studying Architecture at the University of Tasmania.
