In the show Dub Love the artists combine the relaxation, speed and vitality of dancehall with the fetish of classical ballet – pointe shoes that require extraordinary technique. Dancing en pointe, or standing on the very tips of one’s toes, defies gravity and introduces an abstract dimension, imparting a sense of lightness to the dancers, as if they were hovering in the air. The artists combine classical pointe shoe practice with Brazilian religious dance – candomblé, and street dance with dancehall. At the same time they sing to background music played by High Elements, a DJ who combines the deep bass sounds typical of dub with the open melodies characteristic of Jamaican music.
