On Stage: B-boying in Pittsburgh

In the short time it’s been around, hip-hop has established a powerful presence around the world. But I didn’t realize how far hip-hop had come until I visited the hallowed ground at Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival last summer and encountered Rennie Harris during a two-week workshop. The powers-that-be at Jacob’s  Pillow created a buzz of excitement over the project. I haven’t seen much of hip-hop around Pittsburgh. So when the August Wilson Center brought in Rennie Harris Puremovement, I decided to nose around and see just where it is flourishing here. What emerged was a colorful group of passionate artists, a couple of whom were around at the beginning and several of whom will have an impact in the future. Click on Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
