Iron&Sparks are Henri T and Rachel Sparks, an award-winning dance duo. They explore identity, sexuality and play with the outdated traditions of Ballroom dancing by always swapping the lead and follower roles in all their performances. They display equality in their dancing as a political statement. By performing and competing they aim to open the eyes of the audience to think differently about partner dancing and what it reflects in society in terms of gender constructs, relationship dynamics and individual potential. Their aesthetic vision reflects their inner connection… no movement is without meaning and intention or for the sake of beauty itself. Combining their backgrounds in contemporary dance, creative and art direction with their Latin and Ballroom training, Iron&Sparks produce work to make an impact, tell a story and touch into the very thing that makes us human.
