Born to Protest: Joseph Toonga

About

Born to Protest: Joseph Toonga

One year after protests in solidarity and support of Black Lives Matter took place internationally in the wake of George Floyd's murder Joseph Toonga presents his new outdoor door dance piece Born to Protest in Orton Square, Leicester. Choreographer Joseph Toonga and his company Just Us Dance Theatre aims to dismantle presumptions about the Black male figure based on intimidation, danger and isolation, revealing instead character traits around fragility, vulnerability and a constant battle to prove oneself.
