Live Audio Description
Fabric Dance Logo

An explosive outdoor duet in which the dancers set themselves in opposition to two giant wooden cubes in a physical representation of their battle with prejudice and judgement.   

The work explores how bias and judgement can affect the way we view ourselves and the relationships we form, moving towards a place of understanding and togetherness that brings hope for the future.  

The toxicity of the subject matter reverberates in the pulsing soundtrack and the performers’ athletic physicality, which draws on Afro-fusion and Contemporary movement styles.
