A dance showcase featuring some of the art form’s most exciting talents will feature performances by artists from Rennie Harris Puremovement, a company rooted in the foundational elements of hip-hop; Complexions Contemporary Ballet, a diverse and inclusive company focused on eliminating the boundaries of any one style, period, venue, or culture; Parsons Dance, renowned for its energized, athletic work; A.I.M. by Kyle Abraham, a company with works that entwine sensual and provocative vocabulary with a strong emphasis on sound, human behavior and all things visual; and Soles of Duende, a unique trio weaving together tap, flamenco, and kathak dance. The show will also feature a special segment artists performing to the soulful stylings of Madison McFerrin. The work was originally commissioned and produced by four/four presents for their Open Air Series. The evening will include a moment of peace and reflection by Karine Plantadit, former Alvin Ailey and Broadway Tony Award-nominated dancer, instructor, choreographer, certified yoga teacher and life coach.
