Overview

Overview Urban Artistry presents SOUL Purpose

SOUL Purpose is an interactive urban dance showcase and cypher jam (dancer battle) followed by a dance party for the audience and dancers. The three performed dance pieces, showcasing Urban Artistry’s strength in urban dance, particularly house and hip hop, take the audience on a journey through three different stories connected by a shared dream. This journey exposes the challenges and rewards of sustaining a shared vision for artistic clarity, fearlessness, and commitment to embracing change and cultural differences. 

SOUL Purpose's three part performance begins with "One Dream"– a story about the inception of a shared vision of individuals conspiring together to face adversity through embracing their differences. The second piece, "Free From Me" is about the personal struggles to overcome oneself, that the battle for improvement is often within ourselves. Lastly "The Morning After" takes place the morning after the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr. It is a metaphor for the challenges of putting the MLK’s Dream into action and sustaining the lessons from previous generations. There are always different perspectives about a single event, this piece highlights the importance of experiencing each persons story. The three pieces are directed by Rashaad Pearson, Rizqi Rachmat & LaTasha Barnes.

At the conclusion of the performance, a jam session/ dance party with DJ Baronhawk Portier of Urban Artistry encourages the audience to dance!,celebrating their own perspectives on music and dance.

Finding a stronger sense of identity and life purpose through art and movement is a cornerstone of Urban Artistry's mission. This collective show expounds on the real causes and motivations behind the dancing feet of Urban Artistry. 8pm. $15, $12 mbrs.
