Krump: A form of street dance characterized by free, expressive, exaggerated, and highly energetic movement. It’s the rock and roll of the R&B world, a way of expressing difficult emotions, the ones that get you all twisted up inside.
BLACKLIST is an explosive piece asking how do we cope with inner conflict? Delving into brotherhood, isolation and friendship explored through hip hop, krump and theatre.
“Nash offers a mission statement that he ‘aims to change perceptions of krump being nothing more than an aggressive dance style’ With BLACKLIST he achieves this and much, much more” Ian Abbott
FIG LEAF asks what does it mean to be a man? And when does masculinity become toxic? Swinging from love and support, to anger and aggression. The dancers fight the urge to compete with one another and instead attempt to create a support network, brotherhood and community bond.
‘’Nash’s fiercely intelligent FIG LEAF harnessed the heightened aggression of krumping to grapple with toxic masculinity’’ Donald Huter
