Dancing in the Streets presents…

HIP HOP GENERATION NEXT 2009

FROM THE SOUTH BRONX TO SOUTH KOREA – 13 CREWS FROM 3 CONTINENTS REINVENT HIP HOP

From June 13 to August 9, 2009, Dancing in the Streets’ third annual HIP HOP GENERATION NEXT series explores the breadth and scope of hip hop dance and places it in a broad cultural context. With free, public dance and rap performances, community ciphers, a block party, a film, and a public discussion, HIP HOP GENERATION NEXT celebrates the breathtaking virtuosity, jaw-dropping kineticism, and explosive rhythms of hip hop as it continues to evolve in clubs, theatres, and on the streets of New York, Chicago, Philadelphia, South Korea, Sierra Leone, and every corner of the world. The (almost) citywide 2009 series will take place at Lincoln Center Out of Doors in Manhattan; Queensbridge Park and Langston Hughes Community Library and Cultural Center/Queens Library in Queens; St. Mary’s Park in the Bronx; and at Coffey Park, Red Hook in Brooklyn.
