Rennie Harris's RHAW at the New Victory
I've seen his company a few times since, and each time I've been amazed. He continues to grow as a choreographer, and to build on his own personal strengths as a dancer, and to impart them on his company members.
The show features 9 very talented young dancers, and will feature 3 works choreographed by Rennie: “Brother,” an emotional performance about less fortunate male figures in society who are often judged and condemned; “Three B Boys & A Girl,” a love story told through nontraditional break dancing vocabulary; and an excerpt from “Bohemian Rhapsody,” a dance musical featuring music by Queen, which tells a coming-of-age story about one young man’s search for love, identity and justice.
RHAW performs at the New Victory through May 26. Go here to get tickets.
