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. Director: Reggie ‘Regg Roc’ Gray Dramaturg: Nicole May Writers and Performers: Isaiah Hull, Billie Meredith, Jardel Rodrigues, Scarlett Rose Designer: Abby Clarke Lighting Designer: Stephen Page Sound Designer and DJ: Epic Video Designers: Illuminos Dancer and Assistant Choreographer: Deidra Braz Dancers: Slicc, Quamaine Daniels, Shameer Reyes, Dale Coleridge, Yandass Ndlovu Commissioned and produced by Manchester International Festival.
