Rennie Harris Puremovement at Diana Wortham Theatre

ASHEVILLE NC – The pre-eminent hip hop dance company in the world. Puremovement is pure, contagious stage magic, a celebration of life, or as The Village Voice describes their show: “Hip hop dance to a higher power, in both the mathematical and the metaphysical senses.” Under Harris’s artistic direction, Puremovement’s virtuosic dancers stretch brilliant street moves to high art in works that beat with meaning and delight. This company is the international ambassador of hip-hop dance, delivering the true essence and spirit of hip hop, rather than commercially exploited stereotypes. Book your seats early for this remarkable and powerful group – and don’t miss the chance to bring your teens and their friends with you.
