Flex is an electrifying street dance—characterized by pausing, gliding, hat tricks, ‘bone breaking’, animation, and contortion—that has evolved from the Jamaican bruk-up dance style made popular in Brooklyn reggae clubs. Created by flex pioneer Reggie (Regg Roc) Gray and visionary theatre and opera director Peter Sellars, along with an outstanding cast of dancers from the flex community, FLEXN confronts today’s complicated social justice issues by combining raw personal narratives with this powerful and provocative movement style.

Each FLEXN performance will begin with a brief onstage panel discussion, addressing some of the turbulent sociopolitical issues explored during the show.

Please note that FLEXN contains mature content surrounding issues of social justice.
