I have been working with Zinzi Minott of The Rebel Man Standard on a reformulation of her piece 30 Skanks (and other revolutionary dances). It’s part of an evening of dance produced by the group and supported by Arts Council England. Hana Lee Erdman and Keyon Gaskin are also performing.

The London-based photographer Katarzyna Perlak documented the SWAGGA throughout its development process. The material she shot over a period of months forms the basis of SWAGGA, the film.

The film was screened to a sell-out crowd in September, and more screenings are on the way. For now, here is the trailer:

SWAGGA fans should also check out the two tracks that Verity Susman composed for the show, now available to listen to online. It was a real privilege to dance to this composer’s scores, created just for us.
