According to the gospel of hip-hop dance artist Rennie Harris, “movement is how we worship life.” In his latest work, Rennie Harris LIFTED, spirituality and movement traditions intertwine. Inspired by the tale of Oliver Twist, this story of a young black man’s healing and redemption through community is told through live gospel music, hip-hop dance theater, and the rich movement history of house dance, celebrating how these traditions carry our histories and strengthen our reawakenings.
The Joyce’s Open Channels Project promoting diverse voices is generously supported by the Ford Foundation and the Rockefeller Brothers Fund. Underwriting support for The Joyce’s presentation of Rennie Harris LIFTED provided by Kathleen A. Scott. Live Music for Dance Sponsor: Jody and John Arnhold.
