Flexing has only been around for a few years, but it has recently become a dance form with artistic similarities to contemporary choreography and ballet. Also known as bone breaking, this Brooklyn-born dance movement takes inspiration from tutting, waving, and gliding. Though many would argue that the Jamaican street dance bruk-up is where flexing had its origins. The rhythmic contortionist movements are unlike any dance form out there, creating a wide area for artistic interpretation.
In the short film FLEX, director Jordan Bahat uses flexing as the words conveyed by a young man as he struggles with modern day morality. The dark mood is heightened by feelings of doubt and tense decisions. What choice does one take when placed between good and evil?
