Dickson Mbi - Enowate
Developed With Artist at The Lowry
Inspired by a personal trip Dickson Mbi took to his family ancestral village in Cameroon Enowate means Truth Stands.
In this journey Dickson encountered a two- headed snake and a tiger that roared to announce his presence at a funeral. These unnerving experiences brought into question his own identity as he seeks to negotiate his London East End upbringing and his animistic practice influenced by his heritage.
Working with a world – class creative team Dickson will use his award winning skills in popping and contemporary dance to create a dance work that expresses his inner dialogue as if he is a man speaking to his shadow. The aspiration for the work is to tell a story that feels intimate and universally relatable that asks the question “who am I and why am I here?”
