Honoring the company’s 30th anniversary, Rennie Harris Puremovement returns to The Joyce with Harris’ classic work, Rome & Jewels. Set in the streets of Philadelphia, the Bessie Award-winning production is a story of fear, love, and triumph, rooted in the traditions of Hip-Hop and street dance. “The Basquiat of the U.S. contemporary dance scene” (The London Times), Harris reinvents a timeless tale to embody the diverse African-Diasporic traditions of the past and to pave the way for innovative storytelling through dance.
Curtain Chat: Wed, Feb 8
