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. To find out how you can get involved in Flexn Residency, email email@example.com.
Alongside these workshops, MIF will be presenting a series of masterclasses and open rehearsals from Boris Charmatz (10000 Gestures), the Lucinda Childs Company (Available Light), Company Wayne McGregor (ToGather) and Frantic Assembly (Fatherland).
Sign up to My Festival to find out how you can get involved.
Produced by Manchester International Festival and Contact.
