Influenced by their Pacific Island heritage, Black Grace’s unique fusion of contemporary and traditional movement has earned acclaim from audiences and critics across the globe. Their first Northrop appearance will feature a wide variety of works that are eloquent, yet elemental; athletic, yet spiritual; accompanied by body percussion and live drumming. In Crying Men, artistic director Neil Ieremia explores the impact of colonization and the loss of matriarchal balance in Pacific culture, with a focus on the concept of masculinity.
