Busboys and poets restaurant is about 4 blocks away on Monroe St and there are some other places to eat in that same area.

The concession is kind of pricey, but it's a worthwhile contribution to a worthy cause.

This show was incredible. I loved how she interpreted the dynamics between men and women, and how we treat this world, into dance. It was easy to follow even for a newbie like me. It was beautiful.

Description

Aysha Upchurch: Life, Rhythm, Move Project

Part of the Dance Place Hip Hop Festival

_

Retrofuturistic _is a play on time travel and science fiction, all while examining the theme of “men are from Mars and women are from Venus.” It is has all the fun, entertaining appeal of hip hop dance, but also raises some questions about what we are doing to our planet, environmentally and socially. The performance will feature students from the Dance Place Fall Hip Hop Repertory Class.

Life, Rhythm, Move Project (LRMP), an award-winning, critically acclaimed Washington, DC-based ensemble, combines Hip Hop and other dance forms with spoken word, to entertain and engage diverse audiences. Under the direction of Aysha Upchurch, LRMP fuses passion and education with artistry. The company’s body of work examines relevant social issues and dares the audience to laugh, cry and think. In this performance, the ensemble will present new works by Upchurch and guest choreographers.
