Dance Showcase

Rich Mix present three exciting pieces in its Dance Showcase; The Unknown by Cécile Feza Bushidi, Dark Matter – Ring Cycle by Shamita Ray and Laughing To Stop Myself Crying by Karensa Louis.

The Unknown
by Cécile Feza Bushidi
A contemporary dance piece whose poetry and lyricism combines movement, words, and music to support an intimate conversation between two African-born individuals, whose cultural differences are questioned, whereas both of them carry sensory memories of the continent in their own specific ways.

Dark Matter – Ring Cycle
by Shamita Ray
Two stunning and atmospheric solos that blend fluid and dynamic contemporary dance with the intricate hand gestures and percussive rhythms of South Asian dance. Accompanied by a jazzy Indian score, Shamita Ray explores themes ranging from the mysterious content of the universe; to the imprint that experience leaves on the body.

Supported through the Artists’ Programme at Chisenhale Dance Space.

Laughing To Stop Myself Crying
by Karensa Louis
Provocative and dynamic Laughing To Stop Myself Crying confronts the viewer with the decisions and life choices faced by a woman as she wrestles with who she wants to become. This original and intriguing piece contemplates themes of identity, oppression and the self with insight and honesty.
