Part of TPA’s 40th Anniversary Season

Presented in partnership with KMFA-FM

Movement Art Is features the gravity-defying choreography of Jon Boogz and Lil Buck, two artists using movement to inspire social change.  They join the Grammy Award–winning Third Coast Percussion for a dynamic collaboration that blends street dance, percussion ensemble, and electronic soundscapes.

This intimate, evening-length program is at once intensely personal and fiercely virtuosic, with two disparate styles of street dance blending seamlessly with new music by Jlin and Tyondai Braxton, as well as Third Coast Percussion’s critically-acclaimed arrangements of Philip Glass’s Aguas da Amazonia.

Movement Art Is advocates for social change while expressing how vital dance can be.
