Flock Dance Troupe

The cross influencing of one art form to another brings an added dimension by taking an idea further into a totally different experience–like a sequel to a story.  By relating movement and dance to these specific art works, a train of thought is created. The collecting of these particular works, starts with an idea of rebalance in our lives, showing possibilities, our need to deal with states of mind as we journey through loss, ending with our need to become present to our surroundings.

Artists have always been the witnesses of our times.  FLOCK is a conscious carrier of such intentions as their work embraces issues of social concern.  Langstaff believes that movement and gesture are strong purveyors of heart moving information and therefore a helpful way to instigate change.
