The Main Circle: 7.83 - Philip Rachid

The Main Circle: 7.83 - Philip Rachid

World Premiere. The Main Circle: 7.83 - Philip Rachid. Dance, film, and spoken word fuse to create a groundbreaking hip-hop performance.


The Main Circle: 7.83 is a highly physical, mixed media b-boy performance featuring four dancers, two musicians, and spoken word that celebrates art, self-empowerment, resilience, family, and collaboration.

It’s time to remove the taboo of street culture and acknowledge how the art forms that have come out of it have shaped our lives. Written and directed by UAE-based film-maker and dancer Philip Rachid (aka Soultrotter), the work explores the perception of dance across Middle Eastern cultures and traditions.

7.83 is inspired by the Schumann Resonances, a scientific proven frequency that represents the heartbeat of the Earth and its atmosphere. We as humans connect with these natural frequencies, it brings us balance, peace, and harmony. And that is exactly the message we want to spread through this project. By using music, dance, spoken word, and visuals we connect the world.
