Rennie Harris Funkedified

Wednesday, July 10 at 2 PM & 8 PM | Thursday, July 11 at 8 PM

Rennie Harris Puremovement American Street Dance Theater brings Rennie Harris Funkedified to downtown Durham. A multi-media work that celebrates funk music and street dance of the 1970s is set against the landscape of a video montage of African American communities of that era. Inspired by the political turmoil and atmosphere of Rennie Harris’ childhood, Rennie Harris Funkedified will feature live funk band Invincible who will highlight a unique funk sound.

Rennie Harris Funkedified will not only feature dancers from Rennie Harris Puremovement but also one of the most seminal locking groups since Don Campbell and The Campbell Lock Dancers–The Hood Lockers. Narrated by Rennie Harris, Rennie Harris Funkedified is a visual motif of the political, economic, and social state of the 1970s.

Audience members ages 18–30 have the opportunity to purchase $12 tickets to many* 2019 ADF performances. Tickets may only be purchased at the box office one hour prior to performance.
