Salah El Brogy Company performed a revised version of The Race over at Lyric Square as part of DanceWest’s Dance in the Square.

The free event was received so well by its audience and received standing ovations from both the 1pm and 4pm performances.

The piece, first performed at The Place’s Resolution 2015 Festival, featured three dancers and wowed the crowd with their intense athletic moves.

Here are some images on the day, with thanks to DanceWest for the photographs.

Here is my Throwback Thursday contribution… highlights from The Race, which was part of Resolution! 2015 at The Place, London.


The Race is a personal observation of humanity’s ugly side – tackling and criticising politics (undisciplined armies), economics (commercialism, capitalism) and society (racial conflict) – that despite having emotional intelligence, the rules of the jungle still very much apply.

The Race, which was part of The Place’s Resolution! 2015, is a 25-minute contemporary dance piece with five dancers involving live cameras (to visually provide different perspective of what the audience can see on stage) and video art. The Race is my personal observation of the world criticising and reflecting my rejection for what human beings have turned out to be today (soaked in materialistic life / MTV generation) and have been animals to each other in physical, spiritual and power/political levels (resulting in undisciplined armies, racial conflict, colonising each other’s homes, countries, even brains, killing each other, destroying each other and even ourselves bit by bit), which eventually all melts down into the notion of survival of the fittest where despite humans having emotional intelligence, the rules of the jungle still very much apply.

Here are some images from the brilliant Jane Hobson featuring my collaborators Michael Kelland, Jordan Ajadi, Dang Hai Dao and Nicola Migliorati:
