Black Movement Matters – Rennie Harris Puremovement

White Bird Uncaged continues with the legendary hip hop choreographer Rennie Harris, who will bring his brand-new work LIFTED! to Lincoln Hall for it’s world premiere. Loosely based off of Charles Dickens’ Oliver Twist, Lifted follows a young black man who is surrounded and supported by his church community. This powerful and uplifting work will feature music performed by a group of local gospel singers.

In his recent interview with Eugene Weekly‘s Rachael Carnes, Rennie talks about his work, black dance, and the importance of body language!

Rennie Harris: Puremovement hits the Lincoln Hall, PSU stage Jan. 25-27 at 8pm + Saturday matinee at 2pm
