KETCH DI VYBZ (KDV) presents the 1st Dancehall Theater show in Vancouver, BC. This show features a diverse cast and is directed/choreographed by KDV Co-Owner and Artistic Director Mikhail Morris. You can visit Official Website HERE.
Dancehall Theatre is the showing of the diverse demographics of Jamaican society expressed through dance movements, emotions, and creative concepts. Dancehall culture is mostly known for its music and dance in mainstream entertainment yet there is much more richness to the culture to be shared. Dancehall Theatre strives to educate deeper on the authentic histories, meanings, and realities of what Dancehall and Jamaican culture is truly about. KETCH DI VYBZ theatre productions thereby fuse real life stories on stage to inspire audiences with greater understandings of humanity and cultures.
The total KETCH DI VYBZ Dancehall Theatre experience is a powerful blend of authentic dancehall dance vocabulary, cross-cultural connection with a diverse cast, and thought provoking concepts to provide a platform to have rich conversations on dance, culture, and humanity.
ABOUT THIS FIRST PRODUCTION: Dancehall is an entire lifestyle and culture that stems from the realities of pain and poverty in Jamaican society. To understand Dancehall requires an understanding of authentic Jamaican culture and life. This first production titled “Dancehall Donz & Divaz: Blood, Sweat, and Tears” will show the audience what it feels like to live in the inner city and rural parts of Jamaica, as well as communicate the root of all the pain and poverty: a history of slavery in Jamaica. The Donz and Divaz, played by our diverse cast, represent the men and woman who fight each and every day through authenticity to protect their loved ones, culture, and ancestors that paved the way for them. By providing the backstory and cultural education on Jamaica and Dancehall, this first production is the foundation for many future Dancehall Theatre shows to be produced by KETCH DI VYBZ.

2016 DANCE CAST: Mikhail Morris, Kirby Rae Snell, Sophia Gamboa, Orin McRey, Shawn Cheng, Alyssa Amarshi, Martina Stancekova, and Colleen Cassidy.
