PHILADANCO! and Rennie Harris Puremovement Tucson
February 8, 2018 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm MST$20 – $55
Classical ballet meets Hip-hop!
PHILADANCO! presents “Straight Outta Philly” in collaboration with Rennie Harris Puremovement. Two of Philly’s greatest dance institutions will meet on stage in this unique presentation of a fusion of hip-hop and ballet.
PHILADANCO is celebrated internationally for its innovation, creativity, and preservation of predominantly African-American traditions in dance. Founded by Joan Myers Brown in 1970, the group has a legacy of breaking barriers and building bridges across cultural divides.
In a society where hip-hop is often portrayed as a violent, undisciplined counterculture, RENNIE HARRIS PURE MOVEMENT deconstructs popular perception of this generation’s medium of expression, expanding and challenging the boundaries and definitions of hip-hop in general. RHPM works to honor its history, explore its ideas, and further its contributions to the surrounding community.
Harris, a North Philadelphia native, founded RHPM based on the belief that hip-hop is the most important original expression of a new generation, with the unique ability to express universal themes that extend beyond racial, religious, and economic boundaries.
Tickets $20-$55 with discounts for students, seniors, military and UA teachers and staff.
