Bodies In Action presents: IMPOSTER.
A contemporary dance performance that explores the idea of what it's like to be your own enemy.
Join us for an evening of contemporary dance on both Friday, November 26th and Saturday, November 27th commencing at 8p.m. at FieldWorks Dance with choreography by Julian Nichols.
IMPOSTER is a work that explores the idea of what it is like you be your own greatest enemy. In a time where social media, success, and capitalism have taken the driver's seat in the present day, we, as individuals and artists are under extreme pressure to live up to the current standards of society without any essential support. This stress & anxiety becomes the overwhelming factor that drives us to get in the way of our own destiny.
About Bodies In Action:
Bodies in Action ~ enGendering Contemporary Dance based in East London is a Community Interest Company dance organisation founded by dancer and choreographer Julian Nichols. As a company, we strive to provide audiences and communities with engaging contemporary dance by hosting different classes, workshops, organized discussions, and performances. We aim to bridge the gap by including and exposing those who identify along or on the ends of the gender spectrum by challenging conventional gender roles that are the dominant factor of contemporary dance now. As physical bodies, we share our perspective through the lens of a simple, yet revolutionary idea: we stand and encourage people to live in their authentic skin without succumbing to societal pressures of conformity. The gender spectrum, as well as sexual orientation, has become polarizing in recent times, yet we, in the end, are all human. To this end, Bodies in Action promotes equality among all despite gender identity, race, age, sexual orientation, body type, and physical ability through both creations and diversity of the company.
