Why See Rennie Harris?
A Celebration of Dance with Hip Hop Veteran Rennie Harris
The amazing Rennie Harris is one of the most famous faces of hip hop dance and created the first hip hop dance tour company in 1992 'Rennie Harris Puremovement.' In his new show, the dancer presents 'Rennie Harris Funkedfied,' a multi-media piece that celebrates the movements of funk, street dance and hip hop in 1970s New York.
Audiences will be able to delve into Harris' journey; from being inspired by funk culture to eventually becoming a hip hop connoisseur. Harris' Puremovement is the longest running hip hop tour company ever and was followed by the inception of 'RHAW,' another tour company set up by Harris in 2007.
The dancer and choreographer has received a Governors Artist of the year Award and the USA artist award for choreography. He was named as one of Philadelphia's Creative Ambassadors in 2010.
