FUBUNATION x Velorose
The ‘Ruins’ Series with Photography by Amelia Lancaster, Film and Dance
3 - 13 September 2020


Since their debut in 2017, FUBUNATION has employed improvisation infused with Hip Hop influences, and various African dance styles; working predominantly through live performance and in film, they have been gaining recognition and developed a following nationally, across Europe, and beyond

Using art in motion (dance, film) and stasis (photography), FUBUNATION’s ‘Ruins’ Series investigates masculinity and personal struggles (of power and emotion), and through intimacy and separation finds balance between conflict, vulnerability and co-dependency. Without fully unmasking, or coming to a point of resolution, there is no grand finale; if anything, The ‘Ruins’ Series is a beginning. The photography may be monochrome and crystal-clear, but The ‘Ruins’ Series most certainly isn’t black and white. Social, rather than political, issues of what may be identified as a universal ‘black male experience’ are treated with nuance and complexity

The ‘Ruins’ Film will be screened in the gallery, visible 24-7

Waddah Sinada is a dance artist and choreographer, born in Sudan and grew up in London, where he is based. Waddah began his journey in dance in 2009, integrating himself in Street and Hip-Hop styles alongside community-led collectives. Training thereafter in Contemporary Dance at The Place, Waddah has since worked with a number of influential choreographers and music artists, and discovered a love for working both in live theatre and in creating art in movement on film. Interests lie in creating honest and authentic work in which he draws inspiration from instinct and human nature. Most recently, Waddah has been teaching, directing and choreographing independently to develop and nurture his voice as a young and emerging choreographer

Rhys Dennis is London-born, from a Jamaican and Barbadian heritage. He began dancing at a young age in Hip-Hop, going on to study at Conservatoire's Northern School of Contemporary Dance and later graduating from London Contemporary at The Place. Since graduating, Rhys has been an independent freelance artist, choreographing for FUBUNATION, curating events and artistic platforms for outreach. He has worked with high profile music artists and toured internationally with a range of contemporary dance companies teaching workshops throughout the UK and overseas. Rhys believes in movement as a form of therapy and thrives on a collaborative approach to creating art; he feels a great responsibility to connect with communities as much as to communicate with seasoned audiences

Steph Be is a London-based creative producer, event coordinator and DJ, working mostly in Contemporary and Hip-Hop dance theatre. With a background in dance, choreography and movement direction, Steph Be combines her creative and producing skills to elevate all the projects in which she is involved. She has a focus on collaborating with artists across a variety of disciplines, and whose work questions and challenges perspectives on social topics including imperialism, gender and race. Steph Be's portfolio of artists includes Alethia Antonia, Wayward Thread, Becky Namgauds, and FUBUNATION

Amelia Lancaster, artist-photographer, first trained as an architect then set designer, and has been Artist in Residence on the South Kilburn Estate from the time of her debut exhibition at Velorose in November 2017. She has documented the area's urban transformation during an extensive period of regeneration, combining her twin interest in Brutalism and Modernist Housing. As art director on a site-specific project for which she ran community workshops, Amelia met Rhys and Waddah, and the success of that initial collaboration led to FUBUNATION inviting Amelia to become part of The ‘Ruins’ Series. In addition to their joint exhibition at The Roundhouse in November 2019, Lancaster has exhibited at the Courtauld and Proud galleries, and at the Royal Academy, for which some of her 'Regeneration' work was selected. Amelia has exhibited twice previously at Velorose, in ‘Windows on the World’ and ‘3(D) Printers’
