Riley Theatre

This work is part of our season offer - guarantee your seat at three unmissable shows for less.

Raw, visceral, and danced with full-bodied urgency. TRIBE//’s debut work is a bold call to arms performed by an all-female cast.

Still I Rise channels the unapologetic nature of Maya Angelou’s iconic poem, and the unflinching resilience of the human spirit. Cinematic sounds, from pounding beats to stirring classical arias, drive the journey onwards. Falling down, gathering up… we rise.

Choreographer Victoria Fox’s emotive and articulate movement style creates a fragile world of simmering tensions and unrest.

Tickets:£12 (£7)

About the company

Brighton-based TRIBE// was formed in 2016, and has quickly gained a reputation for gutsy and emotive choreography with a striking visual aesthetic.

Striving to evoke both human savagery and vulnerability, the company combines virtuosic movement with sensitive partnering, always with an agenda of equality. There is an open, socially-aware attitude and an interest in using the body’s full range, reflected in their work with a diverse mix of people and performers.

“a contemporary dance company that packs some punch”

"...fuelled by female strength; visceral, persistent and driven by a physicality that seeks to both free and empower" The Stage’s Rachel Elderkin
