Running Time: 65 minutes, no intermission

The acclaimed work Nuttin’ But A Word by Rennie Harris pushes the boundaries of street dance vocabulary and forces its audience to view street dance through a different lens. Challenging the viewer’s perspective of street dance or Hip-hop dance and its culture, Nuttin’ But A Word takes you on a dramatic and abstract journey while twisting, matching, juxtaposing, and pulling vocabulary and music in ways unimaginable. Harris chooses to end this work in a traditional Hip-hop celebration, which Africanists may refer to as the Bantaba.

Prior to the June 9 performance, Robert Battle will present the 2023 Samuel H. Scripps/American Dance Festival Award for lifetime achievement to Rennie Harris.

Friday, June 9 at 7:30pm
Saturday, June 10 at 1:00pm (Children’s Matinee)
