Grin is a digital fruition of performance, sound, visuals and choreography which subverts hyper-sexualised notions of African and Caribbean dance. Grin is a masquerade of dance sculptures where body and costume are accompanied by a pulsating sound score.
Conversation around community building, refusals, friendship and support grounds the development of Grin, which both holds and is held by a cohort of friends. Grin’s significant focus on black love and other experiences of interiority feel essential in considering how we can build empathy and reconstitute networks of solidarity.
Recommended viewing note: the cinematography in Grin is best viewed in a dark room or non-bright spaces.
