“The most brilliant hip-hop choreographer in America,” (The New Yorker) Rennie Harris returns with a 30th anniversary retrospective of works that helped catapult his company to the world stage. In Students of the Asphalt Jungle, March of the Antman and P-Funk, Harris explores gun violence, gangs and other themes as relevant today as when they first premiered. Beautifully crafted and ahead of their time, these acclaimed classics are paired with current repertoire including A Day in the Life and The Word to showcase how Harris “expertly uses hip-hop movement to establish emotional atmosphere” (The New York Times) and tell a story we all need to hear.
