Point of Interest

Runtime: 1 hour, 12 minutes

An alumnus of Philadelphia’s Rennie Harris Puremovement, Raphael Xavier brings excerpts from Point of Interest, a dance work featuring breaking, a form of hip hop characterized by acrobatic floorwork and swift footwork. With a multigenerational cast and a soundscape of beats and spoken word, the piece evaluates sustainability within hip hop, a genre culturally and societally associated with youth.
