A spectacle of sound and visuals, Grin masquerades and undermines hierarchies of power. Grin inverts the continued colonial narratives of black bodies and Caribbean dance styles being solely exotic and hyper-sexualised. Grin is a celebratory performance, inviting you into the carnival. 

"Grins all round, the very epitome of exuberance and black positivity." The Tempohouse - Lorna Irvine
