“The Basquiat of the US Contemporary dance scene,” Lorenzo Rennie Harris has literally embodied the history of hip-hop dance.—London Times
Rennie Harris Puremovement American Street Dance Theater, who wowed ADF audiences last summer with their joyous performance of Rennie Harris FUNKEDIFIED, returns to ADF with Rennie Harris LIFTED, an evening-length gospel House work featuring a live choir. Harris addresses the topic of morality, spirituality, and community through his newest work. Rennie Harris LIFTED is based on the organic spiritual tapestry of House music and dance which is often referred to as going to “church.” Evening performances will include ADF students and local gospel singers.
“As a choreographer of hip-hop, Rennie Harris is both an innovator and a classicist. He’s pushed the form further than anyone else, but he’s also a staunch stickler about roots.”—The New Yorker
Rennie Harris Puremovement’s “Rennie Harris LIFTED” is supported in part by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts.
