Children’s Matinee: Rennie Harris Puremovement American Street Dance Theater


Program: Nuttin’ But a Word
Children’s Matinee
Running Time:
50-60 minutes
Rennie Harris Puremovement Website

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.

The performance will be followed by a FREE Kid’s Party at the Landing of the Bryan Center, complete with activities, snacks, and live music.
