“…[a] searing example of dance as protest”The Boston Globe

Dance pioneer Reggie (Regg Roc) Gray, visionary director Peter Sellars, and members of the D.R.E.A.M. Ring return to the Armory for FLEXN Evolution, re-envisioned with newly created scenes since the Armory premiere in 2015 that embody the next steps in a form that breaks news from the artistic and political front lines. The performances feature a series of self-choreographed and improvisational scenes by 16 dance-activists from the D.R.E.A.M. Ring, a creative engine of acclaimed artists that unite communities through movement for social change around the world. Using the flex dance vocabulary—characterized by sharp, rhythmic contortion, pausing, snapping, gliding, bone-breaking, and animated showmanship—the dance-activists confront issues of social justice and racial equality within our nation’s law enforcement and judicial systems.  VISIT EVENT WEBSITE
