Movemakers Philly presents i.d.
September 23 at 8:00pm
“i.d.” is an uplifting journey through sound and movement that celebrates the complexity of race, culture and gender diversity. Cuban jazz musician Francois Zayas joins Hip Hop and Martial Arts educator Vince Johnson for a raw and up close duet, inviting the audience underneath layers of identity. Johnson is a former principal dancer for Rennie Harris Puremovement and Zayas a former member of the National Symphonic Orchestra of Cuba. Johnson fuses influences from hip hop, martial arts, and contemporary dance into aerodynamic expressions of grace and control. Francois delivers ear-bending beats that travel across a landscape of percussion instrumentation from around the world. Johnson and Zayas are both educators at Movemakers Philly and the newly launched adult programming Urban Movement Arts. Their shared shape shifting celebrates the richness of human expression and identity.
