5IVE is an outdoor athletic dance performance commissioned by Urban Moves International Festival Manchester and supported by Arts Council England. As the Artistic Director and choreographer for the project, I was interested in how women find strength in unity as they take on life. The movement is daring and the imagery thoughtful. the performers lead you on a journey of defence, defiance and hope. 5IVE was performed at outdoor dance festivals nationally including Urban Moves Festival Manchester and Kendel Mint Festival.
