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-progess at Buzz Cut Triple Thrills (Glasgow), OFFTA/La Serre (Montreal) then as a trio in 2017 at Tramway. This year, for DIG 2019, Grin features artists Divine Tasinda and Kemono L.Riot. 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)
