Flex is a form of street dance, that originated in Brooklyn, New York and evolved from Jamaican dance hall and bruk up. Flex pioneer and choreographer Reggie (Regg Roc) Gray and director Peter Sellars created FLEXN together with a community of dancers from Brooklyn. The dancers use a variety of styles – snapping, bone-breaking, pausing, gliding, get-low, hat tricks, and real-time in-body animation – to tell inspiring and powerful narratives about love and justice. As both a dance and social revolution, FLEXN is a virtuoso dance performance about ­living in times of great social unrest.
