I have seen better High school dance concerts.
A mumbling, rambling, nervous narrative to start then repetition, repetition, repetition.
Failed on all levels, technical, talent, entertainment value.
Very disappointing. The Luckman so often has...continued

Although a lot of the music was a bit too "hip hop" electronic to listen to for very long, there was quite a lot of creativity to it. The dancers displayed an amazing degree of ability and endurance. I was very impressed.

There was only a couple of dancers that were really good. Otherwise, this was a very poor non-engaging production. I would not recommend anyone go to this...even if the tickets were free!

Description

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.
