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.

No Sudden Moves //

No Sudden Moves is TRIBE//’s newest work, currently in creation.

“Stuck in a series of events that loop a world of tension and unease, choreographer Victoria Fox takes the audience into a world, where personal decisions shift and alter the consequences of actions, scenes repeat with alternate endings where groups split, spy and interrogate each other.  The music creates an atmospheric drive reminiscent of scandi-noir TV and dystopian film where the cast become powerfully charged as company through Fox’s visceral and punchy movement language to re-build future that is not based on fear.

“I want to reflect the future and state of the current world which we all face. Threats political and personal, our fears, the systems we are part of and play in.” – Victoria


Still I rise //

“TRIBE//s debut work Still I Rise is a defiant and uplifting work danced by a fearless female ensemble. Raw and emotive movement is combined with Fox’s powerful dance style. Inspired by the poem by Maya Angelou of the same title, its words resonate in our current unsettled world. From pounding beats to moving classical Aria’s, the music drives the movement to create a stark world where hope dies last. Falling down, gathering up…we rise”

“I want to see female dancers really owning the stage. Raw and physical, subtle to the extreme, I want to see women enable each other to represent the full range of their strengths. The work channels the resilient, unapologetic nature of the poem that inspired it, and its unflinching, even relentless hope.” – Victoria

Created in Brighton, with preview tour including DanceEast Pulse festival, Discover Dance Festival in Stoke, a sold-out preview in Brighton Fringe 2017, a sold-out show at The Showroom in Chichester, and part of Our City Dances Festival curated by South East Dance. On tour from Spring 2019.

“very beautiful and cinematic …like in Handmaids Tale – you’ve got to hold on to the last fragment of hope, that there’s a way out, a hope of change.“ Deborah, Stoke audience member
