Rennie Harris: LIFTED

March 18 – 19, 2022
Zellerbach Theatre
PLA Presents

Rennie Harris, “the most brilliant hip-hop choreographer in America,” (The New Yorker) returns with the Philadelphia premiere of LIFTED. This evening-length, hip-hop theatre production merges the rhythms of house music with the moving vocals of a live gospel choir to explore community and spirituality through dance. Loosely based on the story of Oliver Twist, LIFTED follows a young black man from trouble to triumph as he is ultimately saved by his church family. “Joyous music and dance” (The Chicago Tribune) abound in this epic, hip-hop narrative.

Please note, a prop gun is used in this performance.
