TRIBE: Still I Rise

"Visceral and Fearless, this is uncommonly intelligent work." Kate Larsen.

Performed by 5 daring female dancers, in 'Still I Rise' raw and energetic dance is combined with instinctual physicality, emotive movement and cinematic scenes. A journey begins of simmering unison, stunning partnering work and tender solos all performed with a gut wrenching power.

Pounding rhythms and a haunting cello drive the movement and creates an intense, stark world where hope dies last….. falling down, gathering up, breathing, we let go, we claim back the space together… we rise.

Inspiration drawn from the poem by Maya Angelou. It’s powerful and defiant words have an ability to resonate with many people, in many different situations or places in our lives, of struggle and rising up from it, which feels ever more appropriate in our current unsettled world.
