“The ABYSS moves away from the traditional battle format of individuals or teams going round for round against each other with a trio of judges choosing the winner(s). Instead, the ABYSS utilizes a “cypher” format whereby participants form a circle and whoever chooses to dance in the middle can do so at any time within a one-hour time limit. At the end, theparticipants privately discuss their experience. Each participant then votes for a winner, but cannot choose him/herself. This format is founded by Junious L. Brickhouse, the founder and executive director of Urban Artistry, and is designed to inspire a culture of honesty, integrity, self-discovery, and fearlessness, along every participant’s journey to evolved artistry.” – Urban Artistry
