This year in MP3, MIXTAPE celebrates the Urban and Street dance communities of Minnesota and extends its collaboration to musical communities. MIXTAPE travels through geographies of sharing successes and weight, holding each other when vulnerable, supporting during the struggle, and standing together when necessary.
“Our stories blend together while giving space to individual narratives like a DJ mixing your favorite songs. We are the record, the needle, linoleum, and the broken cement.” – MIXTAPE
MIXTAPE is a collective of choreographers in the local Urban and Street dance scene that practice breaking, krump, house, New Jack Swing, and mixtures of all of these styles. They use these forms of movement to create dance works that express and explore different ways of seeing and navigating the world. Al Taw’am, Herbert Johnson III, Joelle Fernandez, Darrius Strong, and J-Sun will be curating, mentoring, and choreographing alongside some new dance-makers this year in an effort to expand the local dance scene and provide a bridge into a stage performance.
