Urban Ballet

Presenter: Houston City Dance Company

Description:
Inspired by the music of 2Pac, Sherese Campbell’s Urban Ballet returns with new choreography by Elijah Gibson and the spoken word poetry of Tiffany Scales, a.k.a. The Wordmatician. Urban Ballet explores what it is to be black in an American still wounded by racial division through the use of jazz, hip-hop, modern, pointe and tap. The work, choreographed by Campbell, Elijah Gibson, Jaimee Vilela Navarrete, and Stephanie Sermas, DJ’d by Klean Cutt of the Kracker Nutzz, and interwoven with spoken word poetry, portrays the different experiences in a “ghetto” neighborhood, using City Dance Company and guest hip-hop dancers to create a fusion of styles complex enough to depict the role of dance, music, sex, drugs, alcohol, violence, family, and personal struggle in the day-to-day life of these under-served, over-looked black neighborhoods across the country. The project is funded in part by Mayor Turner’s City’s Initiative Grant and the Houston Arts Alliance.
