Dance Physical Theatre and Circus

Grin, a digital fruition of performance, sound, visuals and choreography which subverts hyper sexualised notions of African and Caribbean dance. Grin is a masquerade of dance sculptures where body and costume are accompanied by a pulsating sound score. Conversation around community-building, refusals, friendship and support grounds the development of Grin, which both holds and is held by, a cohort of friends. Grin's significant focus on black love and other experiences of interiority feels essential in considering how we can build empathy and reconstitute networks of solidarity. In association with Tramway. Supported by Project X and Creative Scotland.
