WHAT IS ION TRIBE?
More than just a dance company.
Ion Tribe was created to boost the scientific literacy of the general public through dance productions, videos, workshops and festivals. Highlighting the beauty of that which is often treated as clinical or unnatural. An artistic vision grounded half in subjective taste and half in objective fact.
Through dance-theatre productions, Ion Tribe is exploring the potential of science based performance. Touching on ground-breaking research topics as well as empirically proven theories as subjects of artistic exploration.
Ion Tribe is committed to training the next generation of dance artists and continually pushing the physicality of the dance community. Through Riding The Curve workshops, Luke Jessop aims to increase the understanding and ability of those who wish to reach new creative heights.
EXPLORING NEW HORIZONS
Alongside our contemporary artistic endeavours, Ion Tribe aims to bridge the gap between other movement disciplines, which is how ConnectLAB was founded. A regularly occuring workshop series focused entirely on partnering skills.
