I THINK MY MOTHER IS A ROBOT choreographed by Adam Wheeler & Dancers (Yellow Wheel)
What happens when Generation Z interviews their parents about the way they perceive the world as children? Delve into a conversation of humorous cross-generational insights with the dancers, featuring their parents.
DI-VER-GENT choreographed by Anna Kenrick (NYDCS)
“You may write me down in history
With your bitter twisted lies,
You may tread me in the very dirt
But still, like dust, I rise”
Inspired by the words of Maya Angelou, the dancers guide us through a landscape of chaos and protest, boldly navigating the diverging paths present in our daily lives. We encounter embodiments of dictators, passionate protesters and moments of rebellion.
Conflicting and disparate, meets bold and united in one space as we pursue the uplifting mantra of: ‘But still, like dust, I rise.’
“Still I Rise” by Maya Angelou

NEO-DIGITAL NATIVE choreographed by Adam Wheeler & Dancers
Neo Digital Native began with the pairing of dancers from Australia and Scotland, exchanging imagery of their lives over social media, and culminated in 8 days of collision to present a work that is continually evolving, without any idea of where it will end.
