I am starting the year sweating and rehearsing for my next upcoming solo. Clear your diaries and make sur you are free for…
“Things aren’t always black or white”
TUESDAY 24th JANUARY
at 8pm, The Place
(near Euston tube station)
WHAT INSPIRED “Things aren’t always black or white”?
The story of what and who lead me to create this solo is quite a journey… From NYC to Philadelphia to Brussels, I came across so many signs, people, cold factual information, tears, questions and events that it all had to be translated into a piece.
One of the shocking images that stays in my mind each time I rehearse is… those 50 coffins. Visiting my Krump dance family in Los Angeles in 2016, I saw bout 50 coffins when entering the dance studio…
It was an arts project. Young men who passed away at the hands of police brutality were remembered through colors, collages and graffiti art.
“Things aren’t always black or white” is a Dancehall / Hiphop Theatre piece, a dark poetic dance drama, exploring the themes of police brutality, mass incarceration and the ugly realities of privatized prisons.
My solo performance is part of Resolutions, a triple bill shared with MCDC and Jannick Moth. We are all very eager to bring a raw night of dance theatre to our audiences.
Thank you for your support, looking forward to sharing this piece with you,
