For several years a successful performer with Silesian Dance Theatre, Jasmin Vardimon and CandoCo, Victoria Fox Markiewicz draws on all these influences to combine a punchy movement style with an equality agenda. Still I Rise is the company’s first piece, inspired by Maya Angelou’s poem of the same name. The dance channels the resilient, unapologetic quality of Angelou’s words into the unflinching, relentless, movement of TRIBE//’s five strong female ensemble, each with their own unique physicality and presence.
