An Evening with Dickson Mbi & Friends
Tickets for An Evening with Dickson Mbi & Friends at The LowryA triple bill by world-renowned hip-hop dancer Dickson and friends, including his spiritual piece ‘Duende’.
Dickson’s ‘Duende’ is a complex artistic and psychical concept that could perhaps be thought of as the manifestation of the spirit of the artist who reaches an authentic point of self-disclosure, conquering the habit of concealment to reveal something of the soul’s living history.
The invitation to connect with another human being in this way, to see a live spirit coming in and out of its vessel, can be overwhelming. We are all visitors in the object world, stepping in and out of the light of reality. Through the ritual of dance, The performer will create a fairy tale that communicates something of the emotion of these moments of light.
