Beauty Meets Beast
Performance & Discussion: Sunday, September 26 @ 5pm ET
Beauty Meets Beast is a dance project conceived by Rokafella that exposes how women in Street and Club dance embody an invisible duality. Street and Club dance genres encompass different styles yet they both expect women to be Beautiful. The two genres also require its women dancers to be able to deliver a Beast Mode performance in order to be comparable to the men who dominate the dance scenes. Dancers will perform solo's sharing their unique take on delivering their Beauty side as well as their Beast side.
Rokafella will recite rhymes and sing vocalizations accompanied by DJKS360/Kwikstep as the piece builds towards the solo moments performed by stellar dancers Violeta Galagarza, Kim Holmes, Uko Snowbunny and GI Jane. A post show discussion will help to deep dive into the dancer's balancing act.
Dance workshops will be offered free of charge by the featured dancers on Sept 27th from 3-6:30p.
Funding support for the creation of this piece was made possible by BCA and City Artist Corp / NYFA.
