TRIBE//’s debut work Still I Rise is a call to arms, a defiant and uplifting work danced by a female ensemble. Raw and emotive dance is combined with choreographer Victoria Fox’s powerful yet articulate movement style. The work channels the resilient, unapologetic nature of Maya Angelou’s poem. It is unflinching, relentless hope for the human spirit that blinds this visceral dance work together. From pounding beats to stirring classical arias, the music drives the dancers onward. Falling down, gathering up… we rise.
This exciting new work was performed at the Jerwood DanceHouse as a work in progress during Pulse Festival 2017, it was brilliantly received by the audience then and we have no doubt that the final piece is going to inspire us all.
