FlexN Residency

In association with Young Identity

Reggie ‘Regg Roc’ Gray directed one of the big hits of MIF15: FlexN Manchester, a thrilling transatlantic street dance collaboration featuring dancers from Greater Manchester and Reggie’s native New York. Two years on, we’re delighted that Reggie will be returning to the Festival for a residency at Contact, part of a series of MIF17 events exploring contemporary dance.

During his time at Contact, Reggie will be introducing a group of young dancers to the flexn dance style, working with local spoken word collective Young Identity to explore new ways of telling stories through words and movement.
