The Rhythm of Fierce

Rhythm is a dancer. It’s a soul’s companion.
You can feel it everywhere. Lift your hands and voices.
Free your mind and join us. You can feel it in the air.
It’s a passion (Snap)

Have you ever boogied in the bedroom or found your fierce freak on the dance-floor?

The Rhythm of Fierce combines the uplifting highs and dark provocations of club culture with some surprising use of wheelchairs. The performance rides the energy of nineties club classics and surrounds the audience in a world of fabulous imagination and primal rhythm.
