About this show

Explore the powerful and healing tradition of Haitian dance, music and vodou, and its connection to the roots of the contemporary hip-hop culture. Through an energetic and compelling mix of dance, singing, drumming and video, The Ase Dance Theatre Collective illuminates the parallels between Haiti's struggle for independence and hip hop as a creative outlet for young people of color to fight racism and oppression. The audience learns about folklore in the African diaspora through call and response, movement and rhythm.
