Who is Icon?
Conrad “Icon” Kaczor is known as one of the most innovative Poppers that specializes in the geometric shape-shifting dance style called Tutting. Conrad's versatility as a dancer, along with his creativity and extensive knowledge of Popping and Tutting, have enabled him to guest perform and teach at national music festivals, judge dance battles on both the East and West coasts, and study with respected street style innovators across the world. Conrad also performs with Heidi Duckler Dance Theater, a site-based dance company located in both Los Angeles and the Pacific Northwest.
As a filmmaker, Conrad's passion for dance is reflected in his collaborations and commissions with both professional dancers and dance companies alike. His short film "We're From Here," about three Portland dancers, toured the film festival circuit and picked up two Best Documentary awards along the way. His recent dance film "What Is Real?" was awarded "Best Cinematography" at the Portland Dance Film Festival in 2019.
