The Very Last Northern White Rhino

52 minutes (Triple-bill 90 min.)

A striking combination of contemporary dance, urban dance (hybrid form), hip-hop, krump, finger tutting and coupé décalé influences

Part of a triple-bill night with Rising Voices: The film, and Megastructure

When the New York Times reporter, Sam Anderson, learned of the death of the last male northern white rhino, he flew to Kenya to spend a week with the last two survivors of the species. The indifferent image of these individuals in the face of the fate of their species conveyed to the reporter a sense of peace at a time of global uncertainty. This piece is a journey from darkness to light, a celebration of life through dance, amidst the chaos of the world.
