In this second manifestation of Symbioh, Humans Collective takes us on a thought-provoking journey inspired by classic archetypes and medieval architecture. Artistic Director Lauren Cox offers an eclectic blend of dance and story telling with roots in Modern, Jazz, African and Improvisation. With original music by Napago, lighting by MicoLuco and costuming by Boneless Bones.
Humans Collective is an ensemble of performers who come together to create art that is reflective and supportive of the diverse human condition. In their opening year, the company produced a sold-out benefit concert, made its television debut for NBC’s Red Nose Day and was featured at the MassBliss Mindfulness Festival in The Berkshires. A portion of the entire year’s proceeds was dedicated to the education of a child from Rock Orphanage in Hyderabad, India.
The director of Humans Collective, Lauren Cox, offers her roots in Rhythmic Gymnastics, Hip Hop, Contemporary Jazz, Modern, Afro-Brazilian, Afro-Haitian and Improvisation. She has danced for artists such as Alicia Keys, Pharrell, LL Cool J and Hong Kong pop sensation, Joey Yung. She has been a guest performer for Rhapsody En Dance, Kota Yamazaki/Fluid Hug-Hug and made her debut at Edmonton Fringe in 2013. This year, Lauren is presenting her choreographic work at Dixon Place as well as the Five Myles Art Gallery in Brooklyn. Additionally, alongside Jeremy McQueen, she is co-choreographing the story of her interracial grandparents in a post-World War II Germany.
