Dates and times

Every day from 11th Oct 2019 until 12th Oct 2019
8:00PM - 9:00PM

Part of Dig International Glasgow

Grin is a contemporary performance of sound, visuals and choreography subverting hyper-sexualised notions of African and Caribbean dances. A masquerade of sculptures where body, costume and lighting unite, embedded in a pulsating soundscore. Grin is a thematic autobiographical story with no words.

Grin was originally developed as solo and was presented as a work-in-progress at Buzz Cut Double Thrills (Glasgow), OFFTA/La Serre (Montreal) then as a trio in 2017 at Tramway. This year, for DIG 2019, Grin features artists and choreographers Divine Tasinda and Levent Nyembo. They will work in collaboration to physically explore their voices through a redevised duet directed and choreographed by Mele Broomes. 

"Grins all round, the very epitome of exuberance and black positivity." (Lorna Irvine, The Tempohouse)

Recommended for ages 12+
