Am I

Shaun Parker & Company


This stunning collision of dance and live music investigates the quintessential meaning of ‘I’. Am I my tribe? Am I my genetic blueprint? Am I a random cosmological consequence? 

Am I is both at once a perpetual question and a tantalising statement. Shaun Parker’s gripping choreography is beautifully set against composer Nick Wales’ rich tapestry of reinvented world music performed by fourteen extraordinary musicians and dancers, including guest artist Shantala Shivalingappa.
