He's Dead

Summerhall Festival - Main Hall

Dance Physical Theatre and Circus

A dark fantasy, conceptual choreography exploring the question: 'Was Tupac depressed?' Using dance, text and striking visuals, Marikiscrycrycry’s He’s Dead delves into the unspoken surrounding mental health in the Black community. Underscored by a brooding hip-hop soundscape, He’s Dead is a complex and powerful endeavour to 'shed tears for the things that we cannot unearth' in an attempt to find clarity in what can never truly be answered. It's a struggle for, and expression of, what it means to be human – yet to be fighting for your humanity constantly. Part of Horizon: Performance Created in England. www.horizonshowcase.uk
