28-01-2014 12:00:00 02-02-2014 12:00:00 America/New_York Rennie Harris Puremovement Rennie Harris Puremovement has been thrilling audiences since 1992 when Philly's Rennie Harris founded it on the belief that hip-hop was the most important original expression of a new generation. The Joyce engagement takes a look back at some of the important and compelling pieces that display the company's well-earned reputation for capturing the fierce urban spirit of this art form. Program highlights are an excerpt from the multi-award winning Rome and Jewels and P-Funk, which begins happily with four dancers b-boying, locking, and popping, before descending into darkness. Also on tap -- the fiercely athletic Students of the Asphalt Jungle and the probing March of the Antmen, with both works telling gripping stories through potent movement. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=139824 Joyce Theater Joyce Theater
