Join us for this work in progress sharing of choreographer Corrie King’s dance piece, XXIV. This provocative new work asks us to check our assumptions about individuality, difference and the connections between people living in high rise council estates and the culture created within this environment.
XXIV interrogates causes and effects for the individual and their community for better or worse. XXIV also honours the fallen voices of Grenfell Tower and hopes to pay tribute to the many that lost their lives that tragic day. The short performance is followed by a Q&A about the work with Corrie King and collaborators.
About Corrie King
Corrie David King, also known as Corrieography, is a young up and coming choreographer and dancer who was inspired to dance from the age of three by his grandmother. His technique training didn’t start until his early teens and prior to that, he was self-taught. In his early years, he was inspired by art, live performances and literature, which helped him to create his own unique movement language. His technique background includes both classical (ballet, tap and contemporary) and Hip Hop (popping, locking, house, lyrical, breaking). Although he has gained more experience in classical forms, Hip Hop is a major influence and he continues to earn respect amongst the Hip Hop community with his style of fusion.
Corrie has also trained in African forms of dance for two years under Beverly Green and her company IRIE! Dance theatre. Graduating from Middlesex University with a BA dance degree, Corrie has performed commercially for the likes of kid ink, T-pain, Hudson East and many others. Corrie has also choreographed for companies like Ilovetour, and UKLC (UK Language course).
