It's the 20th anniversary of E-Moves, the dance series at Harlem Stage celebrating choreographers of color, and this year it's shining the spotlight on hip-hop and its ability to inspire.
The series' two programs–each running on separate weeks–will feature new pieces by specially commissioned artists. The first, from May 2 to May 4, will include fresh work by the choreographer FLUXX as well as performances by tap dancer Joseph Webb and flutist Barédu Ahmed who collaborate under the name Long Arms.
The second, from May 9 to May 11, will feature new work by Omari Mizrahi/Les Ballet Afrik as well as performances by It's Showtime NYC, a group providing opportunities to street and subway dancers–maybe you've even seen them before on the train.
Expect pop-up performances throughout both shows. Tickets are $25 and can be purchased here.
