Still I Rise, the debut work by TRIBE// is a call to arms, a defiant and uplifting work danced by a female cast. Raw and emotive dance is combined with Victoria Fox's powerful yet articulate movement style. The work channels the resilient, unapologetic nature of Maya Angelou's poem. It's unflinching, relentless hope for the human spirit binds this visceral dance work together. From pounding beats to stirring classical arias the music drives the dancers onwards. Falling down, gathering up... we rise.
"I have a desire to see female dancers really owning the stage, to take the space. Raw and physical, subtle yet extreme, I want to see women enable each other and represent the full range of their strengths, virtuosic to vulnerable, the realities in which we live and the journey we continue." Victoria Fox
"A contemporary dance company that packs some punch." culturised.com
"Packed with both physical invention and emotional intensity. 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." Audience member
