Gather Round: Celebrating Street Dance and 50 Years of Hip-Hop

One Manhattan West

July 5, 2023 - July 26, 2023

Ladies of Hip-Hop

Arts Brookfield partners with Works & Process for a series of four performances at Manhattan West Plaza in celebration of the 50th anniversary of hip-hop. Referencing different styles of street dance, the pieces that will be presented were each originally commissioned by Works & Process for the Guggenheim Museum, and marries the institution’s renowned circular rotunda space with the cypher, an open performance circle prevalent in hip-hop. Originally conceptualized in-the-round, this series therefore adapts naturally to Manhattan West Plaza’s performance circle. Each Wednesday night will spotlight a different artistic group and feature beatboxing, breaking, flexn, krumping, live bands, DJ sets, and MCs. On the final night, the performance morphs into a full-blown dance party with fabled DJ Bravo LaFortune and other club legends.
