"The Evolution of Latino Hip Hop" with Latin Groove PDX Productions
Two performances: 7:30 and 9:30 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 29, 2011. $15 advance, $17 door.
From ritual dances to modern footwork, this cast of nationally recognized dancers and choreographers explore the influence of the ancestral sounds of the indigenous tribes of Africa and the Americas on modern Latino hip hop. Performances groove to the revolutionary rhythms of fandango, salsa and samba, leading to today's street hip hop percussion music and dance styles. Artists include choreographers Gabriela Portuguez, Roman Vasquez, Charlene Rose and dancers Damon Keller, Valenka Cully, Brian Baker and a featured musical number by Joaquín López.
This event is part of "La Luna Nueva", Miracle Theatre Group's third annual festival of Hispanic arts and culture from around the world celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month. Like the new moon rising from the shadows, "La Luna Nueva" shines its light on emerging artists and new work across a variety of disciplines. Join us for spirited flamenco, inventive hip hop, Latin jazz, a one-man show from New York, storytelling for families, open mic nights, staged readings of plays under consideration for future production as well as two visual art exhibits. Sponsored by PGE Foundation, The Oregonian and Oregon Arts Commission.
