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     https://www.delart.org/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/Lifted-teaser-Trailer-revised-HD-1280x720.mp4 This presentation of Lifted! by Rennie...
