An amazing performance using the hip hop dance vocabulary to create a unique and artistic multimedia experience. Everyone invloved in the project is incredibly talented: the choreographer, the dancers, the musicians, the sound and visual technicians. Following the show, the audience was invited to stay for a Q&A discussion with Rennie Harris. Valuable insight into the mind of this culturally significant artist!
Hip hop street dance explodes onto the stage, as Rennie Harris Puremovement brings its provocative and controversial new work to YBCA for the first time. In Facing Mekka, YBCA Wattis Artist-in-Residence Harris leads us away from the usual secularity of hip hop to an engagement with deeper spiritual questions, presenting an alternative and compassionate vision of a troubled world and the means to heal if we will take it. At times disturbing, often joyful and always provocative, Harris is both the master and the innovator of this most vital of contemporary art forms.
