TRIBE// will present its latest dance show at the Riley Theatre in Leeds on January 18. Described as a raw, visceral and urgent call to arms, Still I Rise will be performed by an all-female cast.

Taking inspiration from Maya Angelou’s Still I Rise, the dance piece is said to channel the unapologetic nature of the iconic poem, which focuses on the struggle to overcome prejudice and oppression.

A spokesman said: “Victoria Fox’s latest dance work is set in a fragile world of simmering tensions and unrest.

“Channelling the poem’s message of hope, it explores the resilience and determination of the human spirit, asking how much humans are able to endure and still gather themselves back up again.

“By turns sensitive and explosive, the piece has gained both audience and critical acclaim since its UK premiere.

TRIBE// has gained a reputation for creating highly physical and emotive dance work driven by articulate, detailed movement.

TRIBE// artistic director Victoria Fox said: “I want to see female dancers really owning the stage, taking the space. Raw and physical, subtle and extreme, I want to see women enable each other and represent the full range of their strengths, the realities in which we live and the journey which we continue.”
