An explosive fusion of hip hop and dance theatre, this all-female ensemble will blow you away with a performance that is “intensely emotional and casually streetwise” (Jennifer Dunning, New York Times).
Based in Brooklyn and comprised of young women from the United States, Colombia and Japan, this eight-member ensemble may not share the same spoken language, but they have all acquired the common universal languages of dance and urban hip-hop on the streets of the cities where they grew up.
Decadance, led by artistic director Jennifer Weber, strives to take the female hip-hop artist out of the background of music videos and into the forefront of theatrical performance. Decadance vs. The Firebird is a high-energy urban ballet that mashes up Stravinsky’s Firebird with original hip-hop beats, fusing break dancing with ballet and remixing the classic tale from the ballet with a contemporary vision.
