Description: The Watkins Museum is partnering with the Lawrence Public Library on a frightfully fascinating event!

Today it’s an internet sensation, with several hundred thousand followers, spawning memes galore. Come to the Lawrence Public Library to hear Matt discuss the project, along with help from some of the characters in the book!

Description: Rennie Harris Puremovement–American Street Dance Theater was formed in 1992 by Dr. Rennie Harris. His company is the first and longest-running touring hip-hop dance troupe, with a focus on preserving and sharing street dance on stage that expresses universal themes extending beyond racial, religious and economic boundaries. Known for creating work that utilizes hip-hop movement and also finds its voice in theater, Rennie Harris Puremovement–American Street Dance Theater pioneers a new genre, while bringing hip-hop culture to the proscenium stage. As the leading street dance theater company in the U.S., Rennie Harris Puremovement is dedicated to preserving and disseminating hip-hop aesthetics and street dance culture through workshops, classes, history, lecture demonstrations, long-term residencies, mentoring programs and public performances. With his roots in the inner-city, Harris presents a unique story, one that is riveting, intimate and honest. He says it was hip hop that taught him honesty, humility and purity. Rennie Harris Puremovement’s mission is to re-educate the masses about hip-hop culture and street dance through its artistic work. Harris’s work embodies the diverse and rich African-Diasporic traditions of the past, simultaneously evolving a new voice through dance. He is committed to showing audiences a sincere view of the essence and spirit of street dance rather than the commercially exploited stereotype portrayed by the media. The program Nuttin’ But a Word features a suite of dances that challenge the structural integrity of Campbell locking, house, hip-hop and B-boying dance styles. Pushing the boundaries of street dance vocabulary, this acclaimed work forces the audience to view hip hop through a different lens, altering what they think they know as hip-hop dance and culture. Projections including Rennie Harris’s commentary on the different styles of hip-hop dance are interspersed between the sections of the dance.
