Description

The opening night of The Gospel According to the Other Mary saw an incredible reaction to the flex dancer Banks, with audience members desperate to find out more about this enigmatic performer. Part of the freestyle street dance/krumping scene in New York, and a former competitor on the US version of So You Think You Can Dance, this is Banks’s first time performing in an opera house. We hope you enjoy seeing more of his astonishing performance here in this short film.
