About GRIN - Welcome to the Carnival!

V/DA presents Grin

13th & 14th OCTOBER 7PM

A spectacle of sound and visuals, Grin masquerades and undermines hierarchies of power. Grin inverts the continued colonial narratives of black bodies and Caribbean dance styles being solely exotic and hyper-sexualised. Grin is a celebratory performance, inviting you into the carnival.

Directed and choreographed by Mele Broomes of (V/DA) this production features performers who’ve been involved in the Project X programme.

Dancers and collborators
Kemono L.Riot
Divine Amy Tasinda

Music Composer: Patricia Panther
Costume Designer: Zephyr Liddell
Lighting Desginer: Alberto Santos Bellido
Creative Producer: Rhea Lewis

In association with Project X present, a Tramway comission

“Grin is still a work-in-progress, but already the interaction between her dance and lighting – with a gradual reveal of the West Indian roots of her movement – is utterly absorbing.”
— Mary Brennan, The Herald.

Recommended for ages 12+
