Award-winning Philadelphia hip-hop choreographer Rennie Harris, who is "able to make a political theatre that walks the line between overt and implied messages more entertainingly than nearly anyone else," according to The Philadelphia Inquirer, will present a workshop for members of the MIT community on Saturday, Oct. 26 at 1:30pm in the T-Club Lounge on the first floor of the DuPont Athletic Center. Mr. Harris and some of the dancers in his dance company, PureMovement, will share video materials and discuss how they create their dances, with the last part of the session devoted to actual dancing.
Mr. Harris and PureMovement are also giving four performances at Boston University's Tsai Performance Center on October 22-26 as part of Dance Umbrella's performance series. For more information on the workshop, which is sponsored by the Office of the Arts and the Music and Theater Arts Section, call x3-6957.
