I Ain’t No Superman, the central hip hop musical number from MISCELLANEOUS Productions’ original 2019 work AWAY with HOME has been given a new look in a dance-based video created through the medium of motion graphics, a technique that combines sound, motion, text, and graphic design.
Streetdance choreographer Natasha Gorrie and director Elaine Carol worked with a diverse cast of professional dancers from across British Columbia’s hip hop scene to explore young people’s struggles with mental health, connection, disconnection, and fluctuating feelings of powerlessness, confinement, and hope for young people struggling in a time of plague and uncertainty.
The title song “I Ain’t No Superman” was written and composed by MISCELLANEOUS Productions alumna Natasha Pheko. Filmed in November of 2020, this video is a collaboration with the professional media group Magnafire Media.
Individual Donors and Small Businesses
And many generous individuals.
MISCELLANEOUS Productions produces and presents artistic works in collaboration with culturally and socially representative children and youth on the ancestral, traditional and unceded – that means stolen - territories of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm, Sḵwx̱wú7mesh, səlilwətaɬ - Squamish, Musqueam and Tsleil-Waututh peoples. It is an honour to present live performance, theatre, dance, music and digital art on their lands and the lands of their ancestors: their cultures have left a lasting legacy for us to learn from and to cherish.
We would like to humbly thank and honour the Coast Salish people for stewarding the land we occupy, which has been the territory, land, sea and sky, from which our artistic community has grown.
