BATTLE! HIP-HOP IN ARMOR COMMUNITY SHOWCASE

May 11 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Free

The world of street dance battle culture collides with the bygone age of chivalry when modern-day flexN, litefeet and hip hop dancers meet knights in armor. Discover the unexpected parallels—and see what it’s really like to make some moves in all that chainmail, leather, and metal—in this unrivaled series of thrilling dance battles. Dancers and choreographers from Bronx-based It’s Showtime NYC! are May artists-in-residence at the Anderson Center as they reimagine Battle! Hip Hop in Armor. This work was originally commissioned by MetLiveArts in collaboration with the Arms and Armor department at The Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC.

Featuring:
Calvin “Cal” Hunt, Choreographer, Artistic and Program Director, It’s Showtime NYC!

Dancers and Co-Choreographers Jamil ”Stein” Aleem, Anthony “Laiden” John, Nazier “Bless” Morales, Quinn “Qu” Brown, and Shemar “Shem” Walcott

Join It’s Showtime NYC! at the Anderson Center for a community showcase highlighting this innovative exploration of old and new, performing contemporary dance moves in replica armor made in England. This event is free and open to all, donations gratefully accepted from those who are able.

The Tower View Barn is the oldest building on our Historic Site. Originally built in 1915, it was renovated into a flexible meeting and event space in 2012.
