• Looking Back at Resolution! 2013

    In January 2013 Kansaze Dance made their debut at the prestigious Resolution showcase at the Robin Howard Theatre. Performing to a sold out audience the company showcased ‘Looking Back’ a choreography inspired by presenting the past in the present. A multimedia work reflects on memories of protests particularly The Civil Rights Movement, Dresden (2009) and the London student protests (2010).  After the student protests, images of the public uniting together against an injustice this  led Rachael to question how she remembers other past protests. This motivated to make a work that takes the audience on a journey from freedom to discontent illustrating these uprisings through dance.

    “The six dancers of Kansaze Dance are already waiting for us, on-stage, poised in anticipation. A crackling voice-over of Martin Luther King’s I Have A Dream speech provides an arresting aural ambience. The choreography competes well; it’s imaginative, urgent and intense.” Josephine Leask dance writer for The Guardian
