How can we ever truly perceive others’ experiences without confronting our own biases? DanceWorks presents IN-WARD, a unique dance experience depicting the complex, contradictory nature of human emotions through a performance interweaving two seemingly contradictory styles of dance: hip-hop and contemporary. Created by Alexandra ‘Spicey’ Landé and Ebnflōh Dance Company, seven highly skilled dancers join their talents to confront the deep waters of the human psyche in a unique dance experience.
IN-WARD plunges audiences into the deep waters of the human psyche portraying the overlapping of feelings and the subtle contradictions of the unconscious mind. Building the bridges between hip-hop culture and contemporary dance, IN-WARD pushes the boundaries of dance choreography to explore the depths of human relationships through raw and sharp physicality, combining the forces of dramatic tension and dark humour. Featuring a vibrant cast of dancers: Nindy Banks, Jaleesa ‘Tealead’ Coligny, Kosi Eze, Ja James ‘Jigsaw’ Britton Johnson, James-Lee ‘Kiddy’ Joseph, Céline Richard Robichon, and Elie-Anne ‘Rawsss’ Ross.
