VEHEMENT is an evocative dance show that is a love letter to all our former selves. A troupe of 6 dancers clad in stiletto heels will perform 12 new works that document how we process trauma and accept all parts of ourselves, even the ugly ones.
Dark, sexual and passionate. Come on a journey that will capture the facets of growing up- fighting personal demons, breaking generational cycles, and navigating relationships with lovers, others, and yourself. Featuring raw and introspective works that chronicle the quest to finding who you are.
