TRIBE’S // work aims to be flexible for promoters and theatres. The work can exist in a traditional theatrical format but alternative packages mean the work can be adapted for different contexts, spaces, audiences and budgets – a five piece, a trio or duet etc.

Tech requirements aim to be basic and supplemented by our own portable lights.

Still I rise //

Raw and highly physical emotive dance is combined with instinctual physicality; Inspiration is drawn from the poem by Maya Angelou of the same title. It’s powerful and defiant words have an ability to resonate with many people, in our current unsettle world.

Five fearless female dancers begin a journey of simmering unison, restless physical duets and tender solos all performed with a gut-wrenching power. Pounding rhythms drive the movement and create an intense stark world where hope dies last. Falling down, gathering up…we rise

  • A contemporary dance company that packs some punch
    Culturised Magazine
  • Rising from Maya Angelou’s poetry, the choreography piece by Victoria Fox writes powerful movement in an energetic flow making sure to leave a trace in space and in the audience eyes. Constant changes of dynamics stream down the dancers’ bodies, it is refreshing to see how each dancer stands out with their own unique artistic identity. They will mesmerize you either if its with a glance of their eyes, the fluency of their movement or an unexpected expressive gesture. These dancers irradiate confidence mixed with strength, anger and attitude; it’s a fight between vulnerability and power, a rose that has spikes, women -who fall but no one will stop them from rising
