Directed by Amy "Catfox" Campion
Choreography by Amy Campion in collaboration with the dancers
Illuminated Manuscript is a multimedia street dance/theater saga inspired by the Epic of Gilgamesh and told through performer-activated video projection and street dance choreography. Heroic characters use breakdancing, popping, krumping, and hip hop dance to journey through the wilderness, fight monsters, and discover the secret to immortality. Colored by the virtuosity that hip hop dances are known for, the choreography synthesizes body language, gesture, and street dance by drawing on the inherent strengths and integral concepts of street dance traditions.
