This is a digital version of Grin available to watch on demand.

 

Grin is a digital fruition of performance, sound, visuals and choreography which subverts hyper-sexualised notions of African and Caribbean dance. Grin is a masquerade of dance sculptures where body and costume are accompanied by a pulsating sound score.

Conversation around community building, refusals, friendship and support grounds the development of Grin, which both holds and is held by a cohort of friends. Grin’s significant focus on black love and other experiences of interiority feel essential in considering how we can build empathy and reconstitute networks of solidarity.
