Dance Performance (free) – Castle Park

Born to Protest
We are thrilled to present, in co-production with Dance East, a new dance work by choreographer Joseph Toonga, in a free performance in Colchester’s Castle Park.
Born to Protest is a high-octane and virtuoso piece for seven dancers, danced to an eclectic hiphop backing track.
It aims to dismantle presumptions about the Black male figure based on intimidation, danger and isolation, revealing instead character traits including fragility, vulnerability and a constant battle to prove oneself.
