DANCE BITES 2017
Common Anomalies is a triple bill of solo dances by young artists, vastly different in style, exploring their cultural identities. Solos interconnect breakdance, contemporary techniques, vogue, modern dance and folklore in dynamic and challenging vignettes. These works are cross-cultural, personal endeavours that capture a unique snapshot of a world of diverse and interconnected people, multiethnic and globalised.
