The Only Tribe
THE ONLY TRIBE is a fantasia that blends together movement, masks and sociology. This mythical tale explores how identity creates relationships, stirs conflicting tribal identities, and leads to eventual chaos. The distinct geometric shapes of the masks are employed in an exploration of individual identity and the formation of group identities. Through ritualistic movement, sets of masks interact with lighting and projected images to conjure strong visual imagery while music and sound provide emotional contrast and congruency. THE ONLY TRIBE cannot be defined by style or ethnicity; rather, visual elements, sound and movement combine to create a unique dance-theatre experience.
