Hosted in the belly of the theatre, this Krump solo feeds a hunger for communion. The celebrated Krump artist 7Starr performs in dialogue with light, silence, noise, and darkness, freestyling with his raw lexicon. He forges into dark places, carrying us across the gaps that seem to separate us. A groundbreaking work that catalyzes Contemporary dance and Krump practices in a bid for emotional reciprocity. On a mission to breach the singular self, Anima / Darkroom pitches towards a trans-personal catharsis with both vulnerability and brute force. The effort to listen and be heard, to bear witness and be seen, reverberate in an imperfect harmony. Do you see me?
