PERFORMING ARTS LIVE
Hailed by the New Yorker as the “most respected” and “most brilliant” hip-hop choreographer in America, Rennie Harris creates personal and distinctive works, telling stories — through dance, music and spoken word — that are as riveting, intimate and honest as hip-hop itself. With a career that spans over three decades, Harris’s internationally acclaimed company Puremovement embodies the rich tradition of street dance and hip-hop culture, while simultaneously advancing an energetic new voice and vocabulary for dance.
Rennie Harris Puremovement has toured around the world, performing for the Queen of England and the Princess of Monaco, as well as serving as a cultural ambassador for the U.S. State Department. Harris — who has been honored with prestigious awards including the Alvin Ailey Black Choreographers Award, the Guggenheim Fellowship, the Doris Duke Arts Award and Dance Magazine’s Legend Award — is a true legend of dance. In the company’s first ever visit to the region, audiences will experience Harris’s legacy through Nuttin’ But a Word, an evening-length work that pushes the boundaries of street dance vocabulary and challenges audiences to view hip-hop through a different lens.
