Movements: New & Revised consists of three different programs that feature the world premiere of “In Syndication" and reimagine past repertoire, including “The Culture,” “Autonomy,” and “We the People." "The Culture" honors the lineage of Hip Hop through expression of its five pillars -- breakdancing, MCing, DJing, graffiti, and knowledge -- to spread the message of equality. In "Autonomy," artistic director Elijah Alhadji Gibson celebrates the strength, power, perseverance, and diversity of women through a series of solos. "We The People" conveys Gibson’s observations of what happens when the world's harsh truths interrupt people’s daily lives and they respond by demanding change. World premiere “In Syndication” brings awareness to the realities for people who live with depression, in addition the danger that lies in its many myths and misconceptions.
