Lifted! Rennie Harris’ Puremovement @ The Grand Opera House

In Lifted, 2009 Guggenheim Fellow, Dr. Lorenzo “Rennie” Harris merges the powerful rhythms of house music with moving gospel vocals for a contemporary exploration of community and spirituality through dance. Loosely based on the story of Oliver Twist, Lifted follows a young black man from trouble to triumph as he is ultimately “lifted” by his church community. With choreography by Rennie Harris and music directed by Steven Sapp and Mildred Ruiz-Sapp, this new work promises to be an exhilarating dance narrative.

“A tapestry of elegantly fluid popping and locking…phenomenal.” – The New York Times
