Flexn at The Shed
Flexn: street dance with a social conscience This powerful new production from street dance pioneer Reggie ‘Regg Roc’ Gray, co-directed by Kaneza Schaal, explores the puzzles, poetry, and infinite challenges of human coexistence. In Maze, a small audience stands face-to-face with masters of flexn, a form of street dance with roots in Jamaican bruk up and other styles. A labyrinth of light creates a kinetic architecture, illuminating the visible and invisible forces that guide our lives. The dancers include teaching artists and students from The Shed’s FlexNYC program, which engages youth in Title I public schools, public housing developments, and other community-based organizations by exploring social issues through self-expression.
