A Nation Grooves: A People’s History of Hip-Hop
By Kambi Gathesha
A Nation Grooves: A People’s History of Hip-Hop is a dance-driven musical about the history of freestyle dance from the 1970’s to the present, the communities that created it, and the African-derived traditions and histories that preceded it. The show theatricalizes history while telling a compelling piece of musical theatre- allowing the aesthetics of the culture to lead the storytelling. Using dance, song, and text, A Nation Grooves is a show about past, present and future - a new discourse on the staying power of the beat.
