Autograph is a developmental platform that supports established artists as they progress further in their careers. With the support of Serendipity and Dance4, the artists have developed their work to create new pieces for LDIF20. The artists presented in Autographs represent the exciting future of Black dance and highlight up and coming artists to watch.
This year, autograph presents the work of Akiem Toussaint Buck and Yinka Esi Graves.
Akeim Toussaint Buck: Sib Y Osis
Serendipity commissioned Sib Y Osis as part of BHM Live 2019. At Autograph, choreographer Akiem Toussaint Buck presents the next phase in the development of this piece. Sib Y Osis is a dance theatre performance encapsulating a journey of contentment, play, fear, rage and joy. It tells a story exploring an emotive journey shared by siblings living in a state of spirit and dance, opposed by a shifting environment of pain and celebration. Taking inspiration from historical and present systems of discrimination, activism and spirituality, this work draws power from the elating spirit to bring relief from the struggle.
