Under the direction of choreographer Joseph Toonga, Just Us Dance Theatre works at the forefront of Hip Hop in the UK and internationally.  Joseph describes himself as being in a continual search for an authentic reason to choreograph, and frequently draws on real life stories which make his work resonate with people under-represented in audiences for mainstream arts.

Just Us Dance Theatre‘s latest piece is an outdoor work Born to Protest which dismantles the black male stereotype and challenges racial stigma.  Exploring the hypersensitivity of the black male figure, seven dancers create an intense energy performing en masse to Hip Hop beats.
