“Artful and mesmerizing. Xavier transforms a bravado dance style into an introspective meditation.”
Philadelphia-based dancer and choreographer Raphael Xavier combines breakdancing and spoken word to create this evening-length autobiographical work. Based on 30 years of experience in hip-hop dance, The Unofficial Guide to Audience Watching Performance sets street dance choreography to a conversational monologue that “captivates with the impassioned lyrical delivery of a hip-hop artist” (Philadelphia Inquirer). By deconstructing Xavier’s lyrics and breakdancing technique, this group ensemble performance takes audiences on an artistic journey defined by sacrifice, passion, and transcendence.
