How much are you willing to sacrifice?
What have you got to lose?

Reggie ‘Regg Roc’ Gray, the New York dancer-choreographer behind FlexN Manchester (MIF15), joins spoken-word powerhouse Young Identity and dancers from New York and Manchester for a thrilling, intense exploration of power and weakness, triumph and tragedy, anti-heroes and fallen angels. Alphabus draws its story from global myths, faiths and traditions, but it’s rooted in the here and now. A seamless synergy of transatlantic street dance and vital poetry from some of Britain’s most exciting voices, it’s both deeply personal and wholly universal – a dynamic and ambitious new show that captures the collaborative essence of MIF.


Commissioned and produced by Manchester International Festival.
