A conversation in movement between two remarkable artists, Flash brings together Michael Sakamoto, a transdisciplinary creator best known for his innovative and philosophical approach to butoh, and Rennie Harris, an award winning, critically acclaimed hip hop choreographer who has served as USA cultural ambassador to Egypt, Jordan, Palestine, and Israel. Trying out each others language, discovering commonalities, both cultural and personal, exploring two art forms born from marginalized cultures, and addressing the body in crisis, Flash is illumination, enlightenment, stealthiness, and transcendence, the impermanence of life and the urgent need for transformation.

Choreography and Performance: Michael Sakamoto and Rennie Harris
